My nipples were pretty flat before DS, I doubt they will ever be flat again. It doesn't bother me though.

Re: Will my nipples ever be flat again??

hmmm I guess it depends on how long you nurse. I nursed dd for 22 months and they did not go back to pre-baby appearance after a year and half break. Now I am nursing again so I think all hope it lost. I remember looking at the bottle nipples I got at my first baby shower thinking "I DO NOT look like that"... well now I kinda do. No matter, my dh thinks my body is hot. I just can not go without some king of bra anymore the days of using band-aides is gone.

I thought this same thing when nursing Dd1. I nursed her until a year and I went somewhat back to normal after about 6 months of not nursing (my nipples don't look the same, but the "headlights" weren't always ON, if you KWIM)

I nursed for 7 months (DD weaned herself... decisively!) and she's now 15mo and they look pretty much normal. The breasts themselves, yeah, not so much. Small price to pay though.

I must say I have wondered this myself! DH says he don't care one way or another just as long as he gets "his" boobs back. He says they are on loan to DD right now.

well mine never went back to "flat" like they were before. I rather like it though, I hated the way they looked "flat".
