  • I think the girl should be old enough to choose for herself and be able to properly clean them. I disagree with piercing babies ears.

  • When she's not old enough to make a good decision about it. I'd wait until they're 9 or 10.

  • This is totally for each individually family to decide. My little girl can get hers pierced when she wants to as long as she is old enough to remember to take care of them. She was my third baby in 33 months and there was no way I was going to remember to take care of them if I had gotten them done when she was an infant. My parents let me get mine pierced for my 10th birthday. I think this was a good age. Now I don't even wear earrings.

  • I had my daughters done when she was 2 months...

  • I've seen brand new baby girls with their ears pierced. I don't see anything wrong with it as long as the mother cares for them properly. And keeps her in age appropriate earrings throughout the years.

  • I got both my DD ears pierced when they were 3 months old!! I think it is easier that way becasue they really don't mess with them!! They don't know they are even there after 5 min of getting them done and it looks soo cute!!!

  • Even though I love it when little girls and babies have their ears pierced I think that they should be old enough to make the decision for themselves. I just hope both my girls want to do it! But if not, its alright!
