  • People do and I don't think it is my job to decide what others do. For me and mine, I said when my daughter could take care of them and be responsible for them herself, she was ready to have her ears pierced.

  • We got DD's done around 15 months, but a few months ago she started pulling the backs off and wouldn't stop, so we took them out. I wasn't planning on having them pierced again until she was old enough to ask, but MIL sent an ear piercing kit and now I feel obligated, she also got us "baby proof" earrings for her, so I will probably do it in the next few months.

  • I had my daughters done when she was a baby. As soon as the Dr said it was okay. She is now 41/2 never lost one earring, never pulled on them, never had an infection.

  • I have allowed my daughter things as a rite of passage. She was unable to get her ears pierced until she was 13. No dating till age 17. etc..... My thought is if you give them every privilege then the only thing left is sex so many things, cell phones, makeup, dating etc only happen at a certain age.

  • Yes but she doesn't have them now. I did it on her first birthday. it was what i planned. pictures and earings. It was fine until i lost the back of the earing and never put them back in and then she wanted earings for her pictures and they were fake earings and she is just like me and they get infected so for now no earings except the stick on ones. but eventually i will get her earrings again and make sure they always real gold.
