No babies do not need their ears done. My oldest is just now asking and is 7 and still doesn't have them done.

I think there is a window when they are very young that you can be assured they won't mess with them but then their ear lobes are do small you risk funky placement. After that you risk them messing with them either getting them inacted or even ripping an ear. I think its best to wait until they are old enough to understand what's going on and how to act with them. My DD started asking right before her 4 birthday so we got it done add a birthday present it is an awesome memory for her father and I. Everywhere she went for a week she would stop total strangers to point them out. LOL

My oldest had her ears pierced after she had her second set of shots, our youngest was 16 months.

My husband wants to get our daughter's done for her first birthday. I think they look cute, but like you, I'm going back and forth on it. I'm not sure yet.
