  • I think it's silly to jam accessories into plucked holes of infants who can't even speak yet just to enforce a sense of gender normativity on them when they don't even know what that means.

  • Okay, so I was 16 when I got my ears pierced. I waited so long to get them done, mainly because I'm a huge chicken. So I would have prefered if my parents had done it when I was a baby. That way it's out of the way and I wouldn't remember the pain.

    But it's up to the parents ultimately. I totally get a parent's reasoning to not get it done and prefer the child to make their own choice.

  • Why? If she wanted to get her ears pierced when she got older I wouldn't care, but putting jewlery on a baby seems stupid.

  • Not right when she born. But if she wants them, sure she can go get them.

    Are you asking this because you think it would hurt after she is not a baby?

  • No, I think it's pretty awful when people do that to a baby. I had my ears pierced when I was pretty young, not too young, like 6 - 7 and I regret it so I'd want my kid to wait before they got that.

    If she starts mithering for it when she's a bit older then yes she can, but not this side of 6.

  • No, I wouldn't.

    I personally think it is the parents choice in whether they can get there child's ears pierced but what you have to remember is if the child doesn't like it when they grow up they won't wear them and it will heal over sorted.

    • You're still harming a baby, you might not be able to remember the pain but that doesn't help the child that feels it when it's happening. Also how can you tell a baby to be careful and not get them stuck on blankets and toys?

  • I don't even have my own ears pierced, and never have, so no. I would let her decide when she gets older. I wouldn't be putting earrings on her so they would just close back up anyway.

    • Why do you assume she'll also love earrings, though? There is no guarantee.

    • If she really hates them later on she can just take them out and have the hole grow in. This is my personal opinion and I acknowledge that there r other opinions and respect that but this is just how I feel

  • No way O_o I'd leave the decision whether she wants to get her ears pierced up to her when she gets older. A baby can't make that decision.

  • My sister had her ears pierced at 5 months. Nothing went wrong, my parents went to a professional of course.
    I could have gotten my ears pierced that young also, but I was born 2 months early so my mom wanted to be safe so she waited until I was six years old to pierce my ears (plus I begged her).
    I don't see anything wrong with piercing a baby's ear. Most of my friends had their ears pierced before they were two years old.

    • I don't understand... how was it a great decision? Why do it?

    • @Zendrya because I had terrible memories of getting mine done. My parents made me wait until I was 12 but I wanted them way sooner. And honestly people are way too high strung on this issue. If she doesn't like them she can take them out. The hole is barely visible. She's almost 11 now and loves them ftr.

  • Hell no. Wtf? Why would anyone hurt a baby?
