How do you feel about getting an infant's ears pierced?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

How do you feel about a mom who gets her infant daughter's ears pierced? 


Is it trashy? Normal? Should they wait until they get older?


What about piercing a boy's ears? At what age is that acceptable?

This* ... but I got mine done on my 6th b-day. I want my daughter to be able to make that decision herself :)


Quoting momwriter:

I would wait until the child asks to have it done. I got mine done at 7.

I have a sister who somehow ripped one of her earrings out as an infant. Literally tore her little earlobe through. Maybe my parents could have gotten it stitched back together, but they didn't. So to this day she has that slit where her earring ripped her ear because it healed separated like that.


To me, babies are plenty cute without earrings. I wouldn't do it.

It's not my place to perform cosmetic procedures on my children, if they want their ears pierced they can do it when they're old enough to go to a professional piercer. I would never allow them to get it done with a piercing gun and any parent who allows that is irresponsible.

I wanted to get my daughters ears pierced when they were babies, their dad didn't want to. We agreed that when they were 5 they could decide. My oldest couldn't wait and was counting down the days til her 5th birthday and got them done that day. My youngest is 6 and still doesn't have hers done. She said she wants to wait until she is 7. If she decides she wants them done before that, she will get them done.
