I didn't pierce my baby's ear, because he was a boy, and my daughter got hers pierced as a teenager. We only get her pure gold or hypoallergenic.
Quoting rayroe2:I wanted to wait til she could pick if she wanted or not but I did it at a year. I got the 14k. They did great..I cleaned them every time I changed her diaper for almost two weekend and they healed great. She didn't pull at them and if she tried...I just told her no moved her and let her know it would hurt if she touched them.
i will wait when my daughter tells me she wants her ears pierced. she is almost 2 now. she may be my offspring, but its not my place to permanently alter her body without her consent. same goes for circumcising any boys.
if there is a formal event that i really, really want her to have earrings for, i will buy stick-on earrings. simple as that!
I got my daughters ears pierced at 3 months and my son got his done at 8 years old after begging me to have his ear pierced
