  • I took my daughters to the Mall when they were about 12, 13 years old. My granddaughters were 10 and 11. I think they went to "Claire's"

  • We got my dd ears pierced when she was 10 months old at our local mall. Now she's 5 and she hasn't put on any earrings since she was 2. She's a tomboy and she hates having pierced ears so I advise you to wait until she's a little older. When she turns 3-4 ask her if she wants earrings and if she does, then get her ears pierced!!

  • I had my daughter's ears done at Piercing Pagoda at 8 months old. She only cried for a second and has never bothered them. She is 17 months old now. And the OP only asked where and when, not what you think she should do.

  • Mine were 13 and it was at a local store. I realize you didn't ask for opinions but I'll give one anyhow. Some ears are very sensitive and I'd hate to deal with a baby's ear's if you find out that she has an allegy to one of the metals. I wanted my daughters to be able to handle it theirselves. One of my daughters ended up not being able to wear any type of earings as she always was having sores develop. I'm not saying she will or will not but it is a possibility.

  • DD was 3 months at claires, cried for about 5 seconds and was able to distract her. She is now 18 months and she doesnt pull on them at all.

  • My pediatrician did it. She didn't cry with the first one, but cried a little with the second.
