Pierce your daughters ears? I have twin girls and I am torn as to whether or not I should pierce their ears. I know my mom did mine and I like em.

Yep.  I think she was 7mo old.  I wanted to get it done, over with, and not have to worry about it.  Now, at 4, I just buy her earrings and she wears them.  Later, she'll be able to pick them out herself and wear them.

Cool. That's what I am thinking. I has someone tell me don't you want to leave that choice to her when she gets older but mine were done when I was a baby to.

I don't have a daughter, but my mom made me wait until I could care for them properly- I was 5. I think I would do the same.

One of her earlobes is shaped different. Like it didn't form in a 'circle'. The bottom is kinda pointy. No one really notices though. I didn't notice it until DH pointed it out the day after she was born.

Aww. That's good that it's not super noticeable, but bummer you can't get them pierced.

Yeah. I planned on piercing them.. But when I saw that, I figured I don't want to draw attention to it unless she wants to. So I'll let her decide.

No. I will wait until she is older and wants it.
There is a chance they can grow unevenly and the holes not be even.
My friend had a friend who got hers pierced as a baby, it got caught on a blanket and ripped out. Her ear is still messed up as an adult.

I did, but next time I will wait until age 3.
She got them pierced twice, 4 months and then she learned to take them out by 15 months, even the screw back kind. So I let them close and waited until she was 3.
