She should be fine. We got our daughter's ears done when she was about 6months old... one at a time... She didn't cry as much as she did for her shots but she gave the woman that was doing her ears the death glare the whole time...

don't think so it s better when they re young i have four girls, got the first girls done at three she was fine and the second girl was done at six months that was good age actually, i ve two year old and new baby but waiting for two year old to get bit bigger cause she might pull them out when they hurt. must say under two best age in my opinion. will get the baby done at six months just forgot on two year old now she bad age. u ll manage fine they heal fast on kids once u clean them, i didn't mind at all on mine

You dont wanna get your daughters ears pierced when she is that little because she is not done growing they will be un even and not look right when she gets older....wait till she grows up a lil bit then take her. Plus you run a higher chance of them getting infected or her pulling it out. Good luck!

Give Tylenol 1 hour prior to going. By the time she gets pierced, she will just go to sleep. They only cry for a second anyway

My daughter was 3 months when i got her ears pierced she cried for a second then she was fine. She is going to be 2 in dec and she doesn't even know they are there except when it is time to clean or change them.

I can't speak for everyone, but I can speak from experience. My daughter was about 17 months when I got her ears pierced and I wouldn't change my decision for a second. They did both ears at the same time and she maybe cried for a minute. It was just like if she had gotten her shots, maybe better. She didn't mess with them and she wasn't old enough to remember the experience now at 5 yrs. I plan on getting my second daughters pierced at the same age. Hope this helps!

I don't think it should... If she seems to be bothered by the pain some baby tylenol should help with that... If you could when you go to pierce her ears see if there is two people working so they can both pierce at the same time that way she can have it done in one shot and not have to get a second piercing... Good Luck :)
