my boys are intact and I wouldn't pierce a kid's ears until they were asking me to do it.

I have people questioning and pressuring me about piercing my 15 month old daughters ears. I explain that I want to wait til she asks for them and understands what will happen and how to care for them. 

If they press on ("she won't remember!" Or worse "babies that young don't feel pain like us!") I just nod and smile and change the subject. 

It happens. All. The. Time. 

I saw a friend post photos of her baby's ears getting pierced - including the sobbing baby ones. It broke my heart and I've never met the child. Another friend pierced one of her sons ears. Ugh.
