    S/O Infant Earrings

    Advertisements
    Okay, so I'm just curious because of other posts(multiple), what people think of piercing a newborn, or small child's ears. What is your view. Is it up there with circing? Just curious.

    Doesn't really bother me. I don't have kids yet so I can't really. I could totally be repulsed by the idea if I ever had a girl. I didn't get mine until I was 6 or something.

    I myself would wait till she was older and responsible enough to take care of it

    As for me I had mine done when I was a few days old in the hospital, its nice that I dont remember the pain of it but my mom said I kept losing my earings when I would fall asleep lol.

    To each their own is what I say.

    I personally wouldn't do it but that's because I think it's something that Lydia should be old enough to decide if she wants on her own. I mean, it is actual body modification (even minor body modification) and it's her body, so it'll be her decision.

    I just cant do it to Bailey. If she ever comes to me and says she wants it done then fine. I will take her to get it done. I do NOT think its abuse though.

    I figure its her ears and her body when she is ready and she wants them then we will go down that path. I kinda think that she should be able to take care of them her self before I just do it to her but thats just me.

    My mom pierced mine when I was 2, and I pierced DD's when she was 7 months. It hurt for a second, and no longer. It wasn't her decision, so that part I sort of regret. But people knew she was a girl without having to ask, that part I loved.

    I don't care what other people do and I would hope no one would care what I do. It's my decision in how to care for my child.

    If I have a girl, hers will be pierced when she is in infant. I'd rather her not remember the pain.

    I do understand where you are coming from. When DD was younger, I could have her in pink or purple with the word PRINCESS emblazoned across her chest or even her forehead and people would still be like, "What a cute boy!" because she was bald as a cue ball for the first year of her life . I think earrings are adorable on little baby girls but DH and I decided to wait (and DH used to be a super pierced guy: ears, nose, etc, so he's not anti-earring or whatever) and let her decide. Besides, now she's at the age that if she knew I was responsible for causing her pain, she'd be super pissed and I'd get the "Baddddd Mommy" treatment

    I wish I had gotten my daughter's ears pierced as a baby because she wants them now but I'm afraid to do it because she's 2 and she will feel it a lot more and remember the pain a lot more. Honestly it seems easier to get it done as babies and then if they get older and don't want them, they can take them out.
