We did. But she was about 14 months. I went back and forth on it. And to be honest I don't really know what made us decide to. But I'm glad we did.

You know, I'm on the fence on this one. I think it's adorable on babies and don't have a problem with it, but for some reason, the idea of actually having it done to my baby freaks me out. I might wait until she's old enough to tell me that she wants them, but who knows.

I waited until Ariana could decide for herself... and then she never wore earrings and let them close up, TWICE! Lol.... with Bella I will wait also. :-)

I got both of my girls ears pierced when they were little and I'm so glad. They both hardly even flinched. They were young enough they didn't mess with them or touch them at all. I have friends with kids who are older and want them pierced so bad but they're scared about it. Also, with several girls they mess with them when they are older and get them infected.

My girls were about 6 months old.

She can get them done for her First Communion or shortly after for her 8th birthday if she wishes.

She can get them done when she is old enough to realize she wants it....probably school age.

I always have wanted to do my daughters ears. My youngest sister had her ears done around six months I think. But one fell out and my mother just took the other out.

I asked to have mine done when I was four- I still remember getting them pierced.

No, absolutely not. When she is old enough to ask for them and I feel that she is responsible enough to take care of them, we'll talk about it. But until then, not even a thought. And if someone were to go behind my back and take her to have it done, oh man I would be one super mad mama!
