So before nursing I never examined my nipples or anything until they became damaged, then I of course become obsessed with getting them to heal and LO's latch corrected. I had cracks in both of them. They were all healed no scabs, no pain etc but the areas that were cut remained cracked looking so I figured that it would have to fill back in after I weaned but they didn't! And this was over six months ago! I look at them everyday to see if they are filling in but I'm afraid the damage is permanent and it's making me quite depressed. I know I did the best for my baby but I can't help but feel that my nipples are deformed :-( Has this happened to anyone else and how did you deal with it?
