ear piercing???

I am expecting a lil girl in march and I cant wait to do the girlie things with her. I definitely want to get her ears pierced but i have no idea when a good age is. I know they say the younger the better but how young? how old were your daughters when you pierced their ears?

  • try not to do it before 6 months of age, She should have her vaccines before you pirce her ears.
    See if her doctor will do it in the office or he/she can give you the name of an ent that will do it. Don't take her to piercing pagoda, etc.

  • I plan on waiting until my daughter asks me to have hers done. So much more fun to have a "girls day out" when they can actually talk, enjoy and remember the experience!

  • I recently pierced my DDs ears at 18 months. She wanted them, and did very well. No infection or pulling. And she loves checking them out!
