Could visit GP thanks I just wondered if anyone had managed to find a method to deal with it themselves.

Both mine are inverted and gave no trouble for years. But see your GP about this as I did.

Has yours always been inverted? I'd absolutely see the GP if it hasn;t.

One of mine was inverted since childhood, not massively but certainly inverted. It flattened out during my first pregnancy and came out during BF. That side was a bit of a faff the first weeks but nowt dramatic. It stayed 'nippely' after that and still is now, 9 years later.

It's not me - it's my DD and it's always been like that. She is now very conscious of it and is talking about surgery. I was hoping there may be another solution.

It's completely inverted btw

As long as a medical problem has been ruled out then she could use this

It requires perseverance, can be uncomfortable but does work. Surgery should be the last resort.

Asking because my daughter had this too but it had resolved itself before 17. Probably worth checking with your GP.
