This was an interesting topic on our EC..
Some Mums say no way some whether it be because they had their ears peirced or because of culture get them done almost right away.
What do you think...if you have a girl will you get her ears peirced early,later or not till she is old enough to get them done herself ?

This has not been an issue for me the last 3 times lol as they were lil boys haha but Ivy had hers done on her first birthday,I dont have an issue with it but did notice I got some looks.

If i have a girl, she will get hers right away. My DD was 3 months when she got hers.

I guess it's just because of my culture, but we are used to put pretty earings on girls since they are little.LOL

I am guessing that people's choices will be heavily influenced by when their own ears were pierced :-)

No, we will save ear piercing as a reward when our hypothetical daughter is ready.

I don't have any problem with it, have had my own ears pierced since I was a baby.

If we have another little girl, we will probably get her ears pierced at 6 months, like we did with our other girls.. I prefer it that way because we take them to their peds. office, they numb them up and do it.
