Getting pierced while breastfeeding. iNinja Jackson, Missouri 11013 posts

I've searched Google, Yahoo, as well as Gaga for some answers on this and now I'm going n00b and making my own post about this. The post that I did find that held some information on getting pierced while breastfeeding wasn't exactly full of information. SO, please keep this on track for the sake of other n00bs to like to use the search option.



I'm breastfeeding and finally talked my husband into letting me get my lip ring again (it wasn't a matter of him controlling me, it was a matter of him not liking the way a hoop felt when he would kiss me). I know the rules of tattoos and piercings while breastfeeding, that no experienced and reputable artist will do either to a pregnant woman. However, what are the rules with breastfeeding? Not so much on the tattoo issue, but feel free to throw that in aswell for anyone curious. I don't plan on getting inked anytime soon until after I'm finished breastfeeding. I'm just curious on the piercing. I've had my lip done before and healed wonderfully from it. I know how to clean it, I know the rules on taking care of it, all that jazz.



Again, please if we could keep on topic that would be absolutely great.

I was told I had to wait til I was done breastfeeding...well, I got pregnant while I was breastfeeding, so now I have to wait even longer, lol.
:) Have you called the place and asked about their policies?

From what I have gathered they are not supposed to tattoo or pierce someone who is breastfeeding, the same as pregnant. But it would be harder for them to know. I mean, unless you tell them, how would they have any idea. If it is a reputable peircing parlor and you are not going to contract HIV or hep or something, I don't think it's going to cause you or your child any issues.

i thought that the same rules that apply while pregnant apply while breastfeeding.
