I had my nipples pierced and took them out before I got pregnant, but they are healed and I never noticed anything different or wierd. I never nursed any of my 4 older kids but have been nursing this new little girl for nearly 4 months now. The kids never asked about it, or thought it was weird because I didn't act like it was weird or tried to hide it or anything. My older kids are 6, 5(on thurs) 3, & 18 months. Now my older girls pretend they are nursing their babies and have even forgotten that bottles are for feeding tiny babies too lol.

piercings should not be a problem.

show them pics of animals nursing and explain that you make special milk just for baby.

Like reptimom my girls also feed their babies by lifting their shirts! It's the cutest thing.
