In brief: Yes

You can breastfeed if you have nipple piercings.
Although you will have to take the piercings out. We wouldn't want the baby to swallow a ring (they could choke on it). The small holes left by the ring may leak milk at times when you aren't feeding but it won't hurt you or your baby.
