Figure out which apply to you, and if you notice any sudden or unexplained changes in color, size, hairiness, pointy-ness, and tenderness, call your gyno.
Maybe this is a silly question but I have hair on my nipples not like a few hairs- like a ring of hair all around the areola and I was wondering if this might interfere with breastfeeding. I asked my doctor who told me the hairs could tickle the baby's mouth so I should clip them but not shave. I also posted on my home board and got a bunch of conflicting answers advising me to just pump and bottle feed.

THEY come in all different shapes and sizes - every woman is different. Don't worry, it might not be cause for alarm if you look down and suddenly realise they are darker than you remember.

But there are some times you need to worry, especially if you notice changes to your boobs as well.

Nipples, as well as the shape and size of the mammary glands, vary from woman to woman. They can be large or small, pale or dark, different in shape protruding, inverted, flatlooking up or down. According to statistics, the majority of women have protruding nipples sticking out a few millimeters above the areola in the usual state, and a little further when a woman is aroused.
Just as breasts come in all shapes and sizes, there are different nipple types that result in women having significant variations in the appearance of their nipples. There are even differences among these nipple types. Some face front, while others point sideways.
Though there's probably nothing wrong with your boobsit's totally normal to question the changes in your body and worry about the size, shape, and lumpiness of your breasts. But it's also important to remember that there are SO many different types of boobs and nipples. You may not know how they're supposed to look, if your nipples should be dark or hairy, or if it's okay if your boobs feel a little lumpy.
