  • yes, all 3 of mine got it done as infants. i never bought into the whole "ear piercing an infant is mulitation and they should choose for themselves" thing.

  • No. When my children decide they want them done and they can properly care for them, they can have them, but I would never make that choice for them.

  • No.  She decided when she was in High School that she wanted them done.  She finally talked me into having mine done a few years later.

  • I don't have a girl, but I'd never pierce her ears unless she requested it. Why traumatize a little baby like that? It's totally superficial and so mommy thinks she looks "So cute!"
    blech, save body modification for those who can decide for themselves.

  • I did my daughters at 5 months as my mom did with her 3 girls and my sisters (my older sister did hers even younger) have done with their girls! NONE of us are traumatized by it so I don't believe my daughter will be either! My brother refuses to do his daughters'(10) and she begs everytime she sees us to take her to have them done too.
    They can take them out when they are older if they want!

  • My oldest daughter just had hers done, and she's 7. I wanted to wait until she wanted them for herself.

  • We waited until she was almost 7
