  • I got my daughters ear pierced when she was 8 months and I got my second holes done that day too, so we got them done together. We have it on video too. It didn't even hurt.

  • Against. My girls aren't getting pierced until they can ask for them and can take care of them themselves.

  • I'm against it until they ask for it themselves. However, I think it would be easier to do it when they're younger and won't pull on them. lol

  • I had my daughter's ears pierced when she was four months old. Now in highsight I wish I would have waited until she was nine months old. She hasn't had any problems, but I wish I would have waited.

  • against, there is no reason for it. I want to wait until my dd can pick out her own earrings and be excited about getting it done.

  • Against it, i've seen to many toddlers with earrings stuck in their ears at the hospital....

  • For it. I took my daughter to get her ears pierced when she was 2 months old. I don't see the problem.

  • I'm against it. I'm going to wait until she's 8 years old and we'll make a day of it. Kind of like a mommy-daughter day! We'll go shopping, get her ears pierced, get lunch. It'll be fun! And I want to teach her that if she wants something, she has to take care of it.

    I believe that when moms get their baby's ears pierced, they just do it so that people don't think she's a boy! And that's just rude! Yeah, they only cry for a minute, but that whole minute of their life was wasted because they were crying for something stupid.
