Personal choice.

I plan on doing it as soon as I can with my DD. In CA they wont allow you to do it until the baby has had its first round of shots though.

I didn't with my first and I regret it now. I think I will do this ones when she's around 3 months and get my 4yr olds done then too.

I did it after her first shots. Totally a personal choice, but i wouldn't do it behind the father's back.

I would never do it to a baby.

We did my daughter's when she was around 2 months old. It is completely personal choice, but in a lot of other cultures girls leave the hospital with ears pierced cause the doctors will do it for you.
