  • I do, but then again mine where done when I was six months old, (clearly I didn't have a choice,) But as I got older I can choose to wear earrings or not, so could they. As long as shes not too young, go for it.

  • 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.

  • No, personally I don't. The babies never agreed to it & as toddlers most babies have issues with the earrings.

  • It's up to you. I didn't do it, and now my daughter is 9 and petrified to do it. I kind of wish I had just done it before she even realized it. I wanted it to be something she looked back on and always remembered though. I still remember it. I was 10 and it was a big deal to me.

  • Mine were done when I was a baby and I dont mine, and probably if I had a girl I would have done her too

  • Yeah. My parents had my ears pierced as a baby and I can't thank them enough that I didn't have to do it later on. I have 2 boys, but if I had a girl, I would've done it.

  • My mom got mine done when I was 6 months old. If I had or a girl or if I ever had one I would do the samething.

  • Mine were done when I was 8. I think it's a good get the choice. Really....why does a baby need earrings? JMO Babies can't take care of them and to be honest, don't know what the heck they are/why they're there.
