If she wants them done she can get it done after 4years old.

i think i had mine done when i was a baby....so i really havent decided if i was going to do it....i do not know if she is going to be allergic to fake gold like me!  right now i just want her to finish baking and be healthy before i make any decisions on that....but this topic does seem to get pretty heated from what i have seen lol

She can have them done when she's old enough to say she wants them pierced.

We just got my 3 year old daughter's ears pierced. I will get this baby's ears pierced too but we will wait a while.

My 2 year old wants hers done bug I know she will not let me clean them or turn them so i am making her wait. I let my first dd get them done the first time at 2 and they got infected and she would pull at them.

Quoting LuvMyBoys09: She can have them done when she's old enough to say she wants them pierced.

We waited until she wanted them. She was 4 when she started asking. I showed her YouTube videos of other kids getting them done so she knew exactly what to expect! She was pretty good about letting me clean them but we did have some infections that came months after she got them done. We changed them only once but wound up going back to the original gold ones she had them pierced with. While she loves having her ears pierced she has no desire to change them at all!

Maybe 3 months old I was 2 when I got mine done & I vividly remember not wanting the second one done! I will have them both done at the same time at a professional jeweler with real gold earrings not at some kiosk in the mall.

I won't be getting my baby's pierced. Its body modification that I will not force on a child who isn't able to consent. If she wants it when she is older then I have no problem with that. But not until she is old enough to understand that it hurts and its forever.

 I decided when I wanted mine pierced. I think I was in middle school. I will let her decide if and when she wants her done. :)

I will NEVER pierce a babies ears... when she's old enough to understand how to take care of them, and old enough to tell me she wants them, then she can have them.
