bumps around nipple

Do these bumps mean anything regarding breastfeeding capabilities? Meaning, do the bumps mean I'll be able to produce more milk for my baby?

Re: bumps around nipple

Hi Athena, No, those bumps are called Montgomery glands and help to prevent cracking on nipples because they secrete oil. Most moms make more than enough milk for the baby. Welcome to healthboards!

I used to wonder this when I first got pregnant but as gmak said they have nothing to do with producing more milk.
