When is the best time to get a little girls ears pierced?

 My DD is only a month old but I was wondering what is the best time to get them pierced? I wanted to get them done before she is one years old though. I've had people tell me the first month is the best, others say wait until she is closer to six months. ?_?

When she can ask for them to be pierced herself.

I will not put a hole in my daughters ears until she can ask for it. Not your body, not your choice.

 I had my older two DD's done as babies, my youngest turned two yesterday and DH will pierce them on the weekend. I like getting them done young.

After her first set of shots so after she turns 2 months but they would like if they can hold their heads up by themselves. . I got my girls done at 3 months and 7 months no issues and barley even noticed it. I just recommend a place that does both ears at once.

Nope not my body but most definitely my choice.

Quoting LeilaBeansMom: I will not put a hole in my daughters ears until she can ask for it. Not your body, not your choice.

I would wait until she is able to ask for it.
