Exclusively pumping with nipple rings.
I’m leaning towards exclusively pumping vs breast feeding for 2 reasons. One, I would like my husband to be able to feed baby but not have to deal with nipple confusion and all that and two, I have my nipples pierced and I’d prefer not taking them out every time baby needs to eat and add more irritation to my nipples with dealing with the jewelry being taken out and put back in.
First question. Has anyone pumped with nipple rings in? I plan on sanitizing them with alcohol pads or soap and water before every pump session.
Second question. How does the hospital handle pumping moms? I have my own pump. Do they want you to pump while staying in the hospital? Should I just go with the bottle feeding formula that they provide then when I go home start pumping?
