I know some people don't agree with it but my mom had all 5 of ours done when we were infants and none of us had problems with it and I want to do my daughters before she can mess with them. I am thinking about getting my 4 month olds ears pierced this weekend. IF you did your babys, how old were they? Just wondering. TIA

Sera was 6 months and it was done by a professional piercer, with a needle.

I got DD's at 4 months and it was stupid cause she just pulled them out at a year and kept pulling them out everytime I put new one in she would play with them and pull them out ugh oh well

In Colorado, your baby has to have had their 2 month shots in order to pierce their ears. I got my daughters done then. she didn't hardly cry and she never has messed with them. she is 3 now. I am glad that I got them done when she was so little because now she likes to take her earrings out and put different ones in her self lol.

She didn't mess with them? I'm thinking of doing it now cuz shes getting better at grabbing things and I don't want her to play with them

Nope. She's 4.5 now.
We had to take them out a few days later because she fell down the stairs and needed a CT scan at the hospital. But we put them right back in after her scan

I did DDs at 4 months. She did great she cried for a minute and acted angry for about 20 minutes then has never bothered them after even when she got an ear infection

They let DD keep hers in for her CT scan. She fell off the bed 3 weeks after we got them done and they just did the scan with the earrings still in
