What do you moms think of piercing your daughters ears? My little girl got her 2 month shots yesterday and now she is able to get them done. I want to do it early so she wont be trying to rip them out later on. For the moms that have done it how did it go and didthey heal up well?
We got Georgia's done when she was almost 3 months. She didn't even cry.

Do you guys think 5 months is to late?? And where did you take your baby to get it done?
It is so much easier when they are little. Give her some tylenol right before but chances are she will be fine. Make sure you check the dots to amke sure they are lined up before they shoot. Sometimes they can do them both at one time.
I agree the sooner the better - i was 3 months old when my mom got mine done.
My youngest daughter was 3 months she only cried for a second they healed VERY quick b/ she didn't touch them all the time like older kids. She is 23 months now and I'm not sure she even knows they are there still, lol!!

ell its all personal preference. In my family, we waited until they got older so that they could decide to pierce them or not.. But thats just my opinion. I don't see how it could hurt her. The worst thing that would happen is when she gets older she wouldn't want them anymore but thats an easy fix :-D
I got my daughters done friday. She'll be 6months the 12th. She didnt cry and hasnt touched them
We are actually going to do addisons today! (at walmart) shes 10 months
My mom got mine pierced when I was about 2 1/2 months and I plan on doing the same with my daughter. If she didn't get mine pierced when I was young, I probably would have never got them pierced at all lol.
okay well im glad to see so many positive responses. I might go today to do them. She is almost 9 weeks and i jsut want them done now so they heal very soon. Where isa good place to go? Piercing pagoda?
I won't do it until my daughter is old enough to take care of them herself. I was 13 and it was something I looked forward to. I got to pick out my own earrings and my mom made a special day of it. I wouldn't want to take that experience away from my daughter. You can make it a very special memory.
