I'm with you on this one. MIL was adamant that we should pierce dd's ears as a baby. She even bought her earrings. I said NO. We would pierce them when she is old enough to want it. We waited and she asked when she was 5. It didn't really work out then and we had to remove them. She tried again at 10 and they've been in ever since. She is now 12.

Your kid, your choice.

I got mine done when she was a year old, didn't hurt her a bit.

How old is she? If she's old enough to pull on her ears it's actually better to wait until she's older imo! I had my daughters done at 3 months old, but at about a year she kept pulling them out. So we just took them out, and had them redone when she was 4 and asked for it..

If I had a baby girl I'd wait too. It's your choice, not theirs. She is absolutely beautiful! Those legs made me squeal. Lol. Love chunky baby legs!

 Adorable!!!!

I didnt get mine done until I was 10. Didnt bother me at all that I had to wait. I only have boys, but if I had a daughter I would not do it as a baby. I remember some of my friends having their ears pierced when they were small like that, and the holes were all torn up from grabbing at them.

I did my dd after her first shots. Best decision ever. She never noticed them so they healed just fine.
