Philips AVENT Niplette SCF152/02 Helps correct inverted nipples
They changed my life for the better and saved me from surgery!
I was researching plastic surgery options to correct my flat (one slightly more inverted) nipples last year. I didn't want surgery, but I was desperate to give myself a chance to breastfeed. I discovered the Niplette and thought I should try this method before opting for surgery. It worked AMAZINGLY well! I wore them daily for several months under my less padded bras. I'm a small A-cup. I found that if I put them on then re-suctioned after a few minutes of wearing them, my nipples (that I didn't even know I had!!) completely filled the cup and stayed there. Sometimes I slept in them and had no complications. I will say that I never achieved nipples that protrude all the time, but they do respond appropriately and I have no concerns about breastfeeding now. My husband and I are actively trying for a child and I started wearing the Niplettes again after four or five months of not to maintain the progress I'd made. They truly changed my life, and I am so happy with my appearance. My husband was very supportive, too. I sincerely wish more people knew about this product. I was crying in my gyno's office last year about this issue I've been self conscious of all my life, and though supportive, telling me if I couldn't breastfeed the world wouldn't end was not what I needed. This easy to use product was the answer. My only complaint is the tubes don't clean well. I ended up buying a second twin pack because the tubes cracked on my first set. I don't wash the ones I have now for the same reason; I just wipe out the thimbles. I am about to purchase my third set, but it'll take hundreds of these before I ever come lose to the cost of surgery that may or may not have corrected this problem for me. Thank you Avent, now go get the word out!

Made breastfeeding possible! Finally!
I purchased this product because I couldn't breastfeed my first three children because of flat nipples. After using this product, I was able to successfully breastfeed my fourth child! It was a heaven-send for me. Exactly what I needed. The nurses at the hospital were asking me what they were. They were excited about the product and were going to find out more to suggest them for others. If you have had a hard time breastfeeding because of flat nipples, you need these!

Amazing - Don't hesitate to buy this product!
I purchased the Avent Niplette online two months ago and have been using it daily ever since. One nipple was inverted and the other was flat. I was researching inverted nipple correction when I found this product. There were mixed reviews, but I wanted to try it out before considering surgery. Now I only wish that I knew about the niplette sooner! I have small nipples/areola and was worried about the size of the device. I had no problem at all with getting it on and wearing for several hours a day. My whole nipple/areola is pulled in with the suction, but that hasn't caused any problems. My nipple looks very large when I take the niplette off, but it returns to normal quickly. I don't wear at night, but I can wear under a bra with most shirts. It does sometimes come off, but for the most part I can wear for as many hours at a time as I want. I only used a small amount of suction at first, but gradually increased to the full amount. I have been wearing 8-12 hours every day for two months and I am thrilled with the results. My flat nipple has been completely corrected and you would never know it was flat all my life. I would say my inverted nipple is now flat, but does get hard and stick out easily. I had NEVER seen it like that until I tried the niplette. I plan to continue to wear it on that side and I have no doubt I will see the results I want. I apply Medela lanolin before before use and have had no issues with bleeding or dry skin. (Bought the medela soft shells, but found I don't need them and they are too big to wear under my bras.) I highly recommend this product. It works - get it today! You won't see any lasting improvements the first few weeks, but stick with it. This product has changed my life. I feel much more confident and happy with my breasts. Amazing!

This product was extremely helpful and easy to use.
I have used this for several weeks and I have noticed a remarkable change in my inverted nipples. I was worried that the cups would be too small for my nipples but they worked out great. They are extremely easy to use and easily remained in place whil doing routine tasks.
