We have had her ears pierced since she was 4 months old and only had 2 pairs in since then. This year we got her a new pair and she won't keep them in. In fact, for the past almost two weeks, she has taken them out every day, no matter what kind we put in. We have tried hoops, stainless steel, gold, silver, round, birthstones, pearls, cz, ribbed posts, safety backs, rubber backs, you name it, and she takes them off even in her sleep. We won't let her wear them to day care because she has lost 1 already...luckily they found the other and the backs, but what good is that. I need some help. She is getting to be in the terrible two stage, and she likes earrings on Mommy, and we can't catch her taking them out. She is like a little Houdini toddler with the earrings...

Why does she need to wear earrings anyway? If she continues to pull them out then she could rip her earlobe. Why don't you leave them out for now and get her ears re done when she is older and can understand that she needs to leave them in. Also if you give her everything she wants (she likes earrings on mummy) then you are going to make life so difficult for yourself.

I don't understand what the point is to have them if she doesn't want to wear them. You really need to start thinking about picking your battles, or this terrible two stage will go very badly for you. Sorry.
