Ok so I'm curious who will have their baby girls ear pierced as a baby??
With Makenzie I had hers done at 2 weeks old. She was asleep and didn't even wake up much less cry. They were so easy to keep clean and take care of because I did it, plus she never pulled on them or bothered them. That however was 10 1/2 years ago and everyone seemed to have their little girls ears pierced. I remember my mom didn't do mine as a baby and I waited till I was 7 or so, I had a LOT of anxiety about it and was really panicking and scared. Kenz LOVES her earrings now and so therefore I feel like I made the right decision in having them done when she was a baby. It made the whole situation all around easier and better for the both of us.
I have read a lot about people thinking it is mean and not leaving the decision up to the child weather they want it done or not is wrong, kind of like the circ. debate, they compare it. I am not for circ. baby boys (which I do not judge people who do have their baby boys done, I just don't believe it NEEDS to be done, this coming from a mom who had her first done and left her second intact, this isn't really even about circ. anyways lol) but I just don't think it falls in the same place BECAUSE ear piercing holes will close up givin the little girl does not want them later on.
Sigh I really want to have Addies ears done early on but I feel like I am going to be judged. Weird because usually I don't care what other people think, but I do for some reason with this. I feel like it would be so much better if I am able to take care of them when she is little and then she wont pull on them and if she doesn't want them when she's older she can take them out and they will heal up.
So who will have their daughters ears pierced while they are still babies?
