Nope.
I have a two friends with pierced nipples that breastfed just fine. :)
The milk comes out the holes as well. :lol:



I'm hoping the same goes for me as I have pierced nipples as well! :D Just remember to take the jewellery out. :)

Nipples already have multiple holes.

I took my piercings out at 26 weeks. Colostrum is coming out of the holes.
When you breastfeed with nipple rings it is important to take them out BEFORE feeding and then disinfect them before putting them back in or infection can start and transfer to the baby.
Good Luck

to go with what everyone else said about taking them out, i was told be careful since milk comes out of the piercing holes it can come out really fast for baby. told to try recline when feeding to slow gravity
