Quoting xTJ:" I would wait until she is old enough to ask and responsible enough to look after them. I only know 2 ... [snip!] ... have one ear lobe were the piercing is like way out in the middle of the lobe and it looks weird, that's why I wouldn't do it."
Earring lay weird on me now.
Plus, I am now allergic to nickel..so my ears swell and blister with most earrings. :/
I got DD's ears pierced when she was 8 months old. She didn't even cry.
I couldn't let someone else take her to get them done, though. That just sounds wrong.
My oldest has had hers for 10 yrs in. I took her has a baby. My middle my mom brought her to get them done when she was watching her LOL while I was at work. I was thrilled she brought her, cause its 80.00 to get it done. LOL
Lo is 10 months I am bringing her for her first birthday in February to get them done before her party. I have no issues with getting them done. If I had a son I would get his done as well.
All my children have their ears pierced, even my 10 year old son. I got his done when he was around 6 months. My 7 year old got hers pierced at 3 months and my 5 year old got hers pierced between 4 and 5 months. My son likes to wear earrings when he gets dressed up, for like pictures or holidays. My oldest daughter would wear earrings every second of every day if i let her, but she has to take them out for sports. And my 5 year old wears them once in a blue moon because her hair gets tangled around them. She only agrees to wear them if I put her hair up in a fancy bun or something.
I had mine done at 6 weeks by my pedi, right there in her office. I'm glad I got the kids done when I did.. because they're all into so many sports that if I had waited the holes would have closed time and time again because they would always be taking out their earrings. I'd hate to have to repierce them a million times.
