Oh dear Mama...that sounds awful! I am so sorry you are having such a hard time. Is there a lactation consultant you can speak to? Someone who may know more than just your doctor? Can you locate a breastfeeding support group in your area? Anyone from the LLL? There has to be a breastfeeding professional who can help you succeed. If it is just one side, is there a way you can pump that one side while feeding on the other? Hang in there Mama. It will get better.

Here is a link to kellymom. There is a whole section on breastfeeding with inverted nipples.
