Hi, I’d like to better understand how these work, namely the exact effect they have on the nipple; I haven’t been able to find an answer elsewhere.

It says in various places that after a few months the nipple is “permanently erect. I’d like to know if the nipple and areola region actually go permanently erect, as in engorged and smaller (as normally happens when a nipple goes from soft to erect), or if the nipple itself (in people with flat and inverted nipples only), simply sticks out as if erect, in the same way that most nipples always do whether erect or not? If a person with the common sticking-out nipples used it, would it have any effect? Thanks a lot!

Are you pregnant? If so I advise you to go to your midwife before using them. Flat nipples often do go painfully erect when your milk comes in - using this during pregnancy may potentially make your nipples too sore to feed.

Nope, it’s as a preemptive measure as recommended on the instructions. Just want to know what it actually does to the nipple if it’s supposedly permanent
