This is a sign your breasts telling you that you are at a perfect point to start breastfeeding and also that your breasts are full of milk. Something useful you could do is putting a piece of soft cloth or even a napkin right in front of the nipple, making this able to absorb that milk and preventing your clothes to get spoiled. You have to make sure you change this napkin or piece of cloth often, first reason would hygiene and the second one preventing the nipples from remaining wet. Otherwise these will become sore. Remember the optimal thing to do, is to keep your nipples clean, dry and ready for breastfeeding. If your nipple suddenly starts leaking milk you can stop this by pressing the nipple with your hand against the breast for about one minute.

As soon as the nipples stands out, there baby will be completely able to feed without any difficulty. In many cases the shape of the nipple might be abnormal, but it will improve and develop as the pregnancy advances. The main reason to it, is the effect of hormones during this lapse.

Gynecomastia

Question by Mick: Funny gynecomastia (puffy nipples)?
Hi I’m a sixteen year old male and I have had puffy nipples (or Gynecomastia) for two years now. When I’m hot my nipples are really puffy, but when I’m cold they go back to the way they should be. Is this normal?

Best answer:

Answer by Joseph
Yes, it is normal.
And no, sorry to say, it’s not a sign that it will go away.
The only way to decrease gynecomastia is by plastic surgery. Which, by the way, works very well and the results look very nice.
And, if you have insurance. This surgery should be covered by insurance. It’s a medical condition, not an elective surgery.
Get the name of a good plastic surgeon that your insurance covers and go to them for a consultation. See at least three doctors. Get several opinions.
Good luck.

Brown Nipples in Asian Culture

Have you ever asked yourself why is that Asian women have brown nipples? And why is that they are obsessed on turning them pink?

Let’s go with a little bit of history first, within the Asian cultures having pink nipples means being pure or virgin, so in the ancient times women having these kind of nipples were much more appreciated than other women with just brown nipples. We can see it like this, they used to think that the reason for having those pink nipples was that they had less sexual experience, making this much more attractive for men. Of course nowadays we know that is not true, but in most of the cases remained as a tradition.

On a survey recently made in Japan, 75% of the men said that they rather prefer a woman with pink nipples than brown. Curiously the same survey was made on women and 90% of the women said that they rather had pink ones than brown. One of the most common answers was “Because pink is cute” or “I hate mine because they are so brown”.

This also gives us the reason why is that Japanese women are so obsessed on turning their nipples pink. And the reasons are more clear than ever. Men like it, women find it cute. That is more than enough if we want to get cosmetic reasons.

But now, the most important question would be “How do they do it?”. Well Asian cultures have pursued this over the years since the ancient times, trying to change their nipples or areola color is more than normal on oriental countries. They use cosmetic pens like the Virgin Peach. This purpose of this pen is transforming the nipple from brown to pink. Its use it is pretty simple, you just apply it daily on the zone you want the change to be done, and overtime, the color becomes permanent. A spokesperson for the Virgin Peach’s creator and company said “Our product is for a problem many women have, so we are trying to give them an answer and also a solution”. You wouldn’t believe if we told you that this is one of the most chosen gifts during Christmas and Valentine’s Day.

There are also creams, like Virgin Pink. The intention is the same, whitening the nipple, giving a more fresh and younger look.

What do you think about it? Do you think it makes sense? Would you do it? Or do you just think this is a pretext to be forever young? (or at least, look like one).

Why is one of my nipples bigger than the other?

Question by Maddie: Why is one of my nipples bigger than the other?

Answer by Misty

For the same reason women always have one breast that is larger. No one on this planet is completely symmetrical. It is normal. But if the difference is too big, you can always  consult a doctor.

Nipple Erection during Sex

A lot of women always ask why is that their nipples get erect during sexual arousal. The main question would be, Do nipples have a sexual function? Let’s start with the terminology, an erect nipple just means that a nipple is standing out, not flat or invert. And this is something most of the women have. Nipples are just like that by nature.

So the real question would be why is that my nipples get like hard during sexual arousal? This happens when the muscles on the areola start contracting in reaction to a lot of different kinds of stimulation, like cold, suckling, the constant rub against clothes and in this case, the nipples stimulation by a partner’s hand. Even if the nipples had been considered a sexual taboo over the years, the only reason why they get hard is because of their natural response. But this doesn’t mean that touching them is bad or anything like it because there is a reason of so much handling of these, the great stimulation women feel by them being touched or kissed.

Sunburned Nipples

Question by Nicole: Is it normal if my nipples feel sunburned?

I came back from my trip to Florida, and I’ve spent a lot of time on the beach although I had a great time and also really tanned I started feeling a strong burning sensation on my nipples. After a couple of days, they really started to hurt more and more, it feels as if they were literally burning. I’ve checked if everything was alright, and it seems there is nothing wrong with them, I have no cracks or cuts or anything. But just the feeling of them with my bra is killing me, it burns! Any advice or help? What should I do?

Best answer:

Answer by Mary

My friend had the same problem, I guess you just have the same thing, they are chapped. This is because the skin on your nipples is so much more sensitive to cold and heat compared to the rest of your skin. Try using some dry skin lotion on them. Use non-scented lotions. This will help you and it will relieve the pain, time will do the rest. Try to do what I do, I know sometimes you are just busy and need to move quickly, but try to apply some lotion every time you get out of the shower. That will keep them moisture and healthy.
