Just keep trying! As difficult as it may seem, if baby is hungry enough she will learn!
I had flat nipples too, but I never pumped and bottle fed until she started attending daycare at 5 months. Instead, I used the nipple shield to help pop the nipple out gradually and to give my baby something to latch onto. At 6 months, I had to teacher her how to latch on without the shield which was difficult, but I wanted her to be breast fed exclusively so badly that I did whatever it took to keep it going. I breast fed her exculsively for 10 months and then I started introducing whole milk.
Have you tried the shield?
