to me the most important thing is- does she want it done? neither of my girls have even 1 piercing because they havent asked yet. so if shes asking for a second and really wants one go for it.

Personally, I do not like seeing babies and VERY young toddlers with peircing. I think that if they are going to have a permanent mark/hole in their bodies that they should be the ones to choose to have it. However, I understand that parents like how it looks and think it is cute and all. I think that if your daughter isnt old enough to say that she wants a second peircing that you should wait until she is. Good luck with your decision. Her body technically is your responsibility so do what feels right for you, just remember that there is a person behind the peircing with her own opinions.

it all depends on how old your daughter is and if you think she is old enough all i can say is we are getting my daughters ears pierced for the first time for her 5th birthday this yr is your daughter old enough to make her own mind up if not why not tell them that you think that you should wait and let her decide on the 2nd ear piercing or not

I took both my daughters to have their ears pierced when they were about three months old but I think one earring in each ear is quite enough for babies and children. I would not consider a second set of holes for either of my daughters until they were teenagers at least.

i think one in each ear is more then enough until they decided other wise. our little girl was done at 3 months to avoid remembering the pain later on and will not have any more until she decided that what she wants.

Since when is 1 piercing in each ear not enough? that's my point of view anyway. Both of my daughters were pierced at 6 months and our new baby will be the same.
