why would you pierce a baby's ears twice?

and if that wasn't enough the cartilage too! I mean come on, once is enough if you even decide to do it at all...I personally think the child should be old enough to decide for themselves!

  • Im not sure you actually get into the cartilage that soon. I have my ears pierced four times and it wasn't until the fourth time that I got into the cartilage. I know babies' ears are smaller, but are you sure the second piercing went into the cartilage or are you just assuming?

  • I don't understand why you'd do it even once. But you mean they did it up top? Ouch!

  • Legally they cant do the cartilage til age 14, so I very highly doubt it wasdone. And babies should only have their ears pierced ONCE

  • well I am the OP and yes it was done. I don't know who did it and no, I can't confirm that it was actually in the cartilage, but I work in a pediatric clinic and this dad brought this 10 month old baby girl in and her ears were pierced 2 times and the top left ear was also pierced...I didn't think this up on my actually irritated me so much I felt the need to post on here and ask why on earth someone would do that...I am posting anon for pt privacy purposes.

  • I don't know why you'd care if it wasn't your baby.

  • When you see something wrong do you not care because it's not your kid?

  • always has to be an anon that says why do u care not your baby.. great answer to the question there that took some great intelligence to think up that response... NOW to actually answer(note this anon-this is answering a question) i think that its nuts to have a childs ears pierced period we do it for ourselves not for the child they dont ask for it, so that said to have it done twice is pure ludicrous!

  • i have my daughter ears pierced and if anything were to happen i would never do it again until she was older. As for the cartilage being pierced you have to be one sick parent to do that to a baby. I know a couple adults that have it done and said it was the worse pain.
