  • Each parent has to make the decision of when to allow their child to get their ears pierced. For our children it was when they were old enough to ask for it and to take care of the piercing.

  • Well, obviously do it when u feel its right but by law its 6 weeks. My daughter was 6 weeks, she is 14 years old now, her ears have never been infected and she is glad she had them done at an age where she can't remember the pain.

  • Im waiting til my daughter is three. Six weeks is too early IMO ..im sure it hurts bad when you're that young. But I know many moms that did it at 3 months. Its up to you though.

  • ALLOWED.......
    Aloud is "talking aloud, she spoke to the man"
    My girls got their ears pierced in 7th grade when they were old enough to decide for themselves that they WANTED them pierced.A baby can't decide.

  • When the girl can decide for herself and take care of her ears on her own.
