A DEVICE to correct inverted nipples without surgery may help more women with the condition to breastfeed successfully, according to a study from Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton, London. The Niplette, which is available from chemists, uses suction to stretch the short lactiferous ducts that 'tether' the nipple, causing it to point inwards.

A study of the device on 30 women with inverted nipples, published in the British Journal of Plastic Surgery, found that it corrected the condition in all cases.
