I'm a going to be a mother for the first time in 7 weeks. I'm fairly young, and have my nipple pierced. I was wondering if this is going to affect br___t feeding. thank you!

A nipple ring will definitely affect b___stfeeding. Your baby won't be able to get a proper latch on (which is key in successful b___stfeeding) if a nipple ring is in the way. If you still have 7 weeks before the due date, I'd advise you to take the ring out so that your nipple has time to heal. And I think it's definitely worth losing the nipple, b___stfeeding has so many advantages for you and your baby.

it won't affect b___st feeding, but you will have to remove the jewerly before feeding and i would advise cleaning it after with saline solution(1/4 teaspoon sea salt for a cup of water) just to prevent infection
