You may have to try breast pumps to aid in breastfeeding.

Contact a lactation consultant to assist you.

You get special things to wear on your breasts in your third trimester to draw your nipples out so that it is easier for baby to latch onto your nipples when it comes to feeding after s/he is born.

Many women have successfully breast fed with inverted nipples.

Don't use nipple shields for breast feeding, they may seem like a solution, but create more problems than they solve.

Good luck.
