Ear piercing

Most of the time people mistakenly identify my daughter as boy but it’s a girl by nature. Maybe because of her hair and body figure but baby’s look changes from time to time. So I think about putting earrings to her so no one ask me if it is a boy anymore. Just Yesterday I had my daughter ear pierced at the mall though I can’t bear to see her crying because of pain. At first she cried so hard but eventually forgets the sting and pain of the pierce. At nine months my baby now has a beautiful red color earring that shines out and fit to her angelic face.

GB,

Was searching for a GF's blog and came across yours. Started reading and came across your post about about having your baby dd's ears
pierced. I think you were a smart mommy for piercing your dd’s ears early.

Admittedly, I know a lot of people have strong feelings when to pierce a child’s ear. “Let them decide” is being replaced by parental decision when mommy intuition knows, “earlier is better” from either personal or friend’s experiences of unpleasant childhood ear piercing.

I think it just depends on your own personal choice whether or not you wish your baby or little girl to have pierced ears.

Initially, I was unsure too, but asked our ped for her opinion about having our dd's ears pierced. She reached in her pocket and took out a picture of her six month little girl with gold balls in each ear, saying," ...this is what I think." She encouraged me to go ahead and said it was best as an infant when mommy could care for them. She has never had a baby with a pierced ear infection, but has had quite a few older girls ages 2-5 who said they wanted it done, but failed to care for them. She gave me some " Care Tips for Newly Pierced Ears " since she had so many moms ask about having their infants and little girls ears pierced.

Like you, I was almost having an anxiety attack when I took Sandi to have her ears pierced. I know cerebrally, as mothers of girls of all ages, we know it celebrates their femaleness and femininity. After all, they are little girls, right? Growing up I remember many of my little girlfriends were not allowed to get their ears pierced. I could never understand it…but when their parents did finally let them, it always seemed they’d get infected because they were constantly touching them or trying to change out the earrings before they were supposed too.

Congrats on making a great decision on behalf of your dd. She'll thank you later for the "gift of pierced ears" as an infant. If you or any mom would like any of our ped’s care tips for infants, then don’t hesitate to write me an e-mail.
