Did you get your daughter's ears pierced? If so, what age? 


I got my daughter's ear pierced when she was 7 months old... I figured, well she is most likely gonna want them done when she is older, and for older children, it's more "traumatizing" to go through that than it is for babies... Considering she only ever cried for about 1 minute after getting shots everytime, I didn't see the big deal! And she was fine, and since I did it so young, she never played with them, or pulled them out! If I ever have another girl, I will do it to her too!

I'm waiting until they are old enough to choose. So I believe i've got at least 9yrs or so left till they do.

3 out of my 4 girls have pierced ears. All done as 4 month old babies. One wears glasses and got those at 4 months (they wrapped behind her ears) so we thought ear rings may be too uncomfortable. She can get hers done when she's older if she chooses.

Yup, we had our dd's ears pierced when she was about 6 months old. I wouldn't change a thing. She slept right through it and didn't fuss with them or anything. I bought the lock back earrings (i chose solid yellow gold because I can only wear real solid gold without a reaction, and was afraid she might have the same thing.) And the pedi pierced and put her earrings in.

yes, and she was 4 months old when I got them done for the same reasons. She is 2 now and has never fussed with them.

Same logic as you - I had her ears pieced when she was 6 or 7 months old.  I had her ears numbed out with Emla, so mine never even flinched.  She had the same earings for years too.  Only now that she's older she is changing her earrings.

I am letting her choose,I don't wear ear rings. I figure she can do it to rebel as a teen!
