Hi, first of all will like to let u know that this is very common problem faced by lot of mothers n solutions r simple. If u can ask ur Gynac it will also let u know. One of the technique used is suction action with help of syringe, what u do is u cut the top part of syringe where needle is attached to make it a pipe n then from cut end u insert the piston of syringe, now what u do is opposite part of it u place nipple n then gently pull the piston so that due to suction action nipple come out properly, u have to do it for few tines to get results n make sure u r gentle. This is one of the few techniques. Every thing has its prons n cons so would like to tell u to do it gently.
