Hope someone can help me on this... I had my nipples pierced and someone mentioned that I may not be able to breastfeed because of this. ( I took them out about a year ago roughly) Anyone hear this before? I'm scared now

I am a FTM, but my best friend has two pierced nipples and a 2 year old who she BF'd for 3 months. She has had them pierced for like 10 years, so she just took em out when feeding and them put them back in.

From what I've read on www.kellymom.com it's completely doable.

Did that, got the tshirt :-) the only difficulty I have had was with my second baby. she was small (under six pounds), and had a difficult time latching onto my left breast until she had her first two real growth spurts. I have scarring on the left one, but she would have had the same difficulty if my nipples had been bigger naturally.
You'll be fine. it might make you feel better if you found a La Leche meeting near you and made friends before the baby is born. you could ask them how many of them did it, and have in the flesh btdt help if you do end up having a problem.

Holy Nipples, Batman!

I Had my left one pierced, and Callen just weaned at 22mo. My left one did leak more.... Lol and TMI but I think milk came out the sides too some, but not in the same way it comes out the regular way. I was nervous about it too. I think he preferred the other side but I also bad a portion of Lefty's tissue removed for a biopsyx2 lumps. So it didn't produce as much as righty. I just made sure to always offer both breasts to try to not let Lefty's supply drop, alternating which one I started from.

Phew that makes me feel better! I got so upset when someone said that, I know theres a chance for BFing problems with everyone but if I was unable to do it because of something stupid I did like my darn piercings I would be heartbroken! Now I'm kind of excited about having more range to squirt DH with if it'll come out the sides

Lurking from the feb DDC...

I had both of my nipples pierced for years and had taken them out a couple of years before getting pregnant. I had no issues with BFing my DS for over a year. No supply issues, no latching issues, nothing. I didn't even have anything come out the sides
