Piercing 1 year olds ears?!


ermmmm reet, well, just wanted to know if you agree with this or not.....

is it right to pierce a little 1 year old girls ears....she has JUST started walking.

i just dont know, i pesonally wouldnt get my babies ears pierced, i have a few piercing in my ears and gosh they are painful and annoying when you try to sleep, surely this will be the same for a baby, or am i just being very stupid?!?

them other of the lil one is 21 just turned 21 a few months ago, still doesnt work, has no intention of working, and just spends her OHs money like there is no tomorrow!
which i dont agree with either to be honest.

anyway, what are your views on piercing babies ears

my dd is nearly 6 and she has not got her's peirced as i would never forgive myself if she got a infection. if she wants to get her ears peirced when she is older that is fine but she is not a fashion item so i wold not get it done purely for me

its always quite an emotive issue, i think personally it's down to the parents. i had my down at 4 months, but maddi hasn't got her's done yet, and tbh i haven't decided when she can have them done, probably before she starts school. i really do think its personal preference x

I have no problem with it, but I don't think I'd want to do it so young for my own kids.

It's a very hot topic, and like princess_bump said is down to the parents. I know people on here who's babies have theirs done and I would never judge them for it!


I was in a Claire's Accessories one day though and a four month old was getting it done. She was the same age as Niamh and the way she cried, I just felt physically sick and the room started spinning. It was such an odd feeling. I think it was because Niamh was the same age, I dunno.

I dont like it on babies, im not even that keen on it for little girls. However this being said, 6 weeks ago my dd (4) and I were in a jewellery shop and she was asking about having her ears pierced and I said no, she was too young. We left the shop and she cried and cried, i took her back and got the lady to explain to her how sore it would be and that sometimes they can hurt afterwards and that they take lots of looking after - still didnt phase her at all. I called her dad and he didnt want it done but she pleaded with him to let her (i'll just say my daughter is a very switched on little so and so and has him wrapped round her finger) so by the end of the phone call he said it was her choice but he wasnt keen. I also, still didnt really want her to have it done but she was sooooo excited by the idea and pleaded with me that much that I gave in and let her have it done.

I have to admit now, they do actually look very nice. But i would still prefer her not to have them pierced. But she is pleased as punch with them and daily still looks in the mirror with a big smile and asks us if her ears are beautiful.

I would never have gotten it done if she hadnt asked for it and really dont like it on babies, They said the youngest they do is from 8 weeks - thats horrid!
