The Areola actually takes the bulk of suckling stress involved. In order to prepare the nipple for nursing, a commercial or high quality home grade breast pump or milk extractor can be used. This helps to pull the nipple into a better position. Nipple Shields gave been used to nurse with some success as well. Active and regular stimulation, including including stimulation, sexual activity and foreplay can help the nipple to draw out.
