Olivia--No matter the age of a child they will feel the pain of ear piercing. I do not know where you get the idea that a few weeks old child would not feel it.

You should've gotten her earspierced when she was a few weeks old. Now she'll probably feel the pain a bit. Normal for her to take her time on walking. 😊

Both of my kids didn't start walking until about 14 months. No biggy. Totally normal. In fact, my pediatrician told me his own child was 19 months before walking. Mile stones are set for what you can expect, not a rule.

Also, piercing ears......personally I would not want to pierce ears unless my child asks for it. Their body....their choice to modify it.

As far as the thumb sucking goes, yes it can alter their teeth. I wouldn't encourage it, but it is an extremely hard habit to break.

The 'normal' (in quotes cuz some kids w/ no issues still fall outside of this range) range for first steps is 9-18 months and the 'average (in quotes for same reason) age of first steps is around 13 months. No need to worry at all at this point.

As for ear piercing... I don't agree w/ it until the child is old enough to ask for it AND old enough to be responsible for taking care of the piercing themselves. Many parents feel/choose differently though.
