At what age did you get your daughters ears pierced and do you regret it now? How did she handle it?

I had my daughter's done at 3 months, and I definitely regret it. They kept getting infections and she was always pulling on them. It did not matter what type of earing it was ie: gold, silver, stainless steel, etc. Nothing worked, so at 7 months the earing came out. Now I'm just hoping the scars go away. I don't want to scare you out of getting your little one's ears pierced, just be careful... especially if you notice that she has sensitive skin.

I got my daughters done at 4 months and i dont regrat it.it is harder to take care of them because of milk and all that but we learned early on that she is alergic to silver and fake jewlery with them she still has them and dont mess with them compared to if they were older.

Well we got my first daughters ears pierced before she was a year I'm guessing about 8 months old well all the earings we bought kept falling out... So we just left it and didn't bother anymore figured we'd redo them when she got older... Well we had them redone when she was 5 about a month before her 6th birthday by then I had 2 more daughters and I also got my 3 year old daughters done then too I was going to do my baby girls at that time too she was 6 months (because the ear rings there were better - seemed like they would stay in!) but the ladies there said they wouldn't do a babies....



When we got our daughters done we made sure there were two people there who were able to pierce... that way they could both pierce at the same time that way they don't have to sit through one piercing and then have to get it one more time.....



I don't regret doing it when my daughter was 8 months and I would have done my 6 month old if someone there pierced babies my girls enjoyed it being able to pick out there earings too though so I think any age is ok... but make sure the earings are going to stay in if they are babies, i was mostly afriad my daughter was going to swallow them!!!!
