Ok so I have a very judgmental opinion on this :/
I hate piercing baby girls ears
I think it's mean to put your baby through pain and risk infection just so she looks cuter to you.
The baby doesn't benefit from it and yet she has to feel the pain for the moms benefit.
The holes could grow unevenly
It could get infected
She could hate the holes
Honestly I think it just looks bad, it looks to me like the mom cares more about appearances then she does her baby's best interest.
There, I know it's horribly judgmental
I know it's rude.
I'd never say this to people's faces because I think it's not my place, but this is a debate group so I'm putting it out there.
I'm sure moms who pierce their baby's ears see it totally different, one minute of pain and she will forget, easier to keep clean, healed before she can grab them, etc.
I don't think they are bad moms, but I still hate the fact that it's legal to pierce your baby's ears. Permanently altering your child's body for cosmetic reasons just doesn't sit well with me.
Ok, I'll apologize right away for all the people I'll offend by posting this, I don't mean you're bad for piercing your baby's ears, but this IS what I feel deep down when I see it........
Let's debate :D
