Pierced nipple or nipples

The potential problem

Nipple piercings may interfere with your ability to breastfeed. The piercing itself may cause complications leading to blocked milk ducts and reduced milk flow. This could hinder your milk production.

Of course, you'll need to remove any jewelry from your nipples when you're nursing. It would be difficult for a baby to latch on properly with a piece of metal in the way. The hardware could also injure your baby's mouth and pose a choking hazard if any part of it came loose.

Can I breastfeed?

Yes, as long as you remove your jewelry.


You won't know whether your milk flow is affected until you start nursing. Ask a lactation expert for guidance and support.

Also let your baby's doctor know about your piercing. She'll need to keep a close eye on your baby's weight gain to make sure he's getting enough to eat. (Learn how to tell if your baby's getting enough milk.)
