My daughter lost an earring will her ear close up right away?

I just noticed my daughter has an earring missing and I don't have any other extras. She's 10 months old and she has had them pierced since she was 2 1/2 Months old. Will they close up right away or will they be okay for a day or two?

  • They will be okay for a day or two. Her ears have had enough time to heal from the initial piercing.

  • no... my dd NEVER kept her earing in and yes I even did the nail polish thing... so I took them out while she was still in the crib and they've never fully closed up...
    so she'll be fine for a few days/week.

  • no, they will be alright. i worked in a body piercing studio and it takes a little time to close up-unless they were just pierced like a few hours ago, otherwise they will be ok

  • They should be fine, as most other moms have commented.

    I was wondering what the nail polish thing was, too - lol

    In my experience (and I have 6 kids - only one of which is a boy), the only time we've had lobe piercings close is if one was infected and left with no earring in for a while.

  • If they were pierced well they won't close at all. I haven't worn earrings in years and know my holes aren't closed, because every few years or so I give it another try just to see if I can still wear earrings and they go in no problem.
