My daughter is 13 months old and doesn't have her ears pierced

my mil has a big issue with me not getting her ears pierced .... shes said I need to get them pierced before its too late

to late for what ? the end of the world  ? the zombie apocalypse ....

I cry every time I take her in for her shots ..... you think I'm going to go get her ears pierced

 willingly

I told her if shes wants them done she better take her to get them done ...

she says my daughter (Maya )would hate her and that she hardly knows her ...

ugh shes sees her every other week . This bitch is nuts

Thoughts ?

If I had a girl, I personally would get her ears pierced while she was stile an infant, but I also think that the decision is ultimately up to you. Your MIL doesn't get a say.

If you don't want to do it, don't! End of story.

  We waited until my daughter asked to have them done...she was 5.  I waited almost a year before actually doing it so she knew that it would hurt and she would be able to help take care of them.  She cried when they did it but was done crying by the time we got home.

I wouldn't allow her to take her. My dd will not get hers done until she can ask for them herself!

She needs to mind her own business. My dd is 3 and still doesn't have hers done

Why is it any of MILs business?

My DD just turned 5 and doesn't have hers done, and I personally didn't have mine pierced the first time until I was almost 10!

Good.for.you mama!! I cant stand seeing little girls with pierced ears! Piercing guns are so unsanitary and damaging!

I don't understand your MIL. Is it a cultural thing?

Mine was the same way. Only one of my girls wanted her ears done at 5. The other is 5 right now and doesn't want them. I hate ear rings on babies.

I have four girls. I let them make the choice. Two wanted them, the other two do not. I would hate to take that choice from them. It's their body.
