  • I got my daughter's ears done at 8 months. They should at least have their first round of vaccinations. People on here will say all kinds of stupid crap about it. One mother said it was wrong and "altering their bodies" while admittingly smoking pot during breastfeeding. The moms on here really crack me up.

  • My ears were pierced when I was 4. My sister's dad did hers when she was 2 weeks. My mom was PISSED. I've thought about getting my daughter's pierced when she was around 4 months - if I have ever have a daughter - but I'm not sure about it and my husband is completely against it.

  • 4 months actually does seem early.

  • I have mixed emotions on this... I don't think earrings look pretty on a 8 month old baby. But that is only my opinion, and I'm not bashing moms that have it done. My niece is three, she just got her ears pierced. I think it shouldn't be done until the child is old enough to make that decision for herself. And for wise reasons, not because her cousin has her ears pierced...

  • It's getting their ears pierced not a tattoo for crying outloud. People on here are so retarded.

  • I don't kids should get them pierced if they can't clean and take care of themselves. I just don't understand how the parents can stand there while their baby cries. It is hard enough when my baby cries from shots.

  • Bridget, I didn't read the posts until afterwards... I wasn't trying to point you out... I said 8 months off the top of my head. I'm not trying to put you down or say anything bad about your mothering skills... Please don't be offended
