Rated 5 out of 5 by Yaynipples Wish I had these sooner!!
Firstly I want to say that I NEVER write reviews but I have to tell people about this product!! Im 19 and have had very inverted nipples my entire life and have been very self conscious. I have had these less than a week and Im already seeing a difference. I came across these months ago and hesitated and now I wish Id bought these sooner. I read loads of good reviews but didnt believe that this would work for me as my nipples have never come out before. Im using these for a few hours each day and building up my time of use. So far I am extremely impressed!! Suction has lost a few times but now Ive been using coconut oil, I apply a tiny amount to and around my nipples before putting the niplette on and they stay comfortably and even make my nipples soft! The only fault I would say is the length of the tube between the thimble and the syringe, but Im guessing there is a reason for this? At first I thought the thimble was too small but its actually perfect! I plan on using these over the next few months and will then re-review this item. Im so excited to keep at it and get nipples!! DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY THIS!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Audrey4791 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Buttons This product is very simple to use
I have been using this product for almost 5 months now and i am reasonably happy with the results. At the beginning i found them to be quite painful but i think that is because i was pulling them too tight. They stay on very well after applying vaseline to the edge and now my nipples do come out when i'm cold. I feel for the product to work you need to keep it on for at least 8 hours a day every day as i noticed if i don't put them back on for just a day my nipples become inverted again. Nipple formers work very well with the niplette (i wear them at night and niplette during the day). I'm going to keep using this product for a few more months and if my nipples do not then become permanently out i have going to resort to the operation. This product probably has different results for different people as some nipples may be more inverted than others. But overall i would recommend you give this product a try as for me i do feel much less insecure after wearing it for a while.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mya21 Effective depending on severity of inverted nipples
I used this product and found that after a month my nipples were corrected however the results for me did not stay that way, and even though they haven't gone back to what they used to be, when i stop using them for over a week my nipples go back in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happy1234 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LT1000 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Elspeth Solves the problem of flat/ inverted nipples
I have totally inverted nipples and this lttle device brings them out. I had difficulty keeping them on until I lined the inner edge with a smear of vaseline (don't leave any gaps and it will maintain the seal). They can stay on all night and it makes feeding far easier.

As many women I have small/ flat nipples. So excited about Niplette I didn't think twice and I bought it. Unfortunately, it doesn't stay on nipple for more than 10 seconds. I used it according to instruction but didn't work for me. And the plastic cup is too large.
