Another silly ?: Will my nipples ever feel "normal" again?

I was just thinking today about how crazy it is. My dd nurses like crazy. She has a very strong suck. It doesn't bother me at all! But if i wear a shirt without a bra, it feels like fingernails on a chalkboard, kwim?

I either have to wear a very padded bra, or breast pads with everything!
I know that they were sensitive when I first got pg with ODD. I nursed her until almost 14 mo and they were sensitive the whole time. Then I got pg with YDD at 15 mo...

So will they ever feel "normal" again? Or will I have to spend the rest of my life in extra padded bras.

Give me hope please!

LOL!! Yes, they will absolutely feel normal again! And not long after you stop nursing.

No, they will not be sensitive forever. (Try some of those burn bandages, you know, the gel ones? They sell Soothies specifically for the nips, but I think those gel burn bandages are the same thing and much cheaper.)

My DD is beginning to wean and I'm wondering if I'll ever get feeling back! :sigh: I guess it's a matter of defining a NEW normal.

LOL, kwym, I got comments before I got pregnant like, "are you even wearing a bra with that shirt?"... duh of course.. but I am one that, well you know, shows all the time,

well with BF I give up on ever feeling modest about my breasts in public. LOL. If anyone stares, especially men, I just act like I don't know what they are looking at, lol.

Mine have always felt "normal" but one of my friends said she had absolutely zero sensation in her nipples the entire year she nursed. She said that feeling did return soon after weaning.
