Don’t you people have anything else better to do then write comments criticizing my decision in wanting to pierce my Childs ears. Keep your opinions to your self i didn’t ask for your thoughts in the matter.


Do them yourself OP. A block of ice to numb the lobe and the biggest darning needle you can find OR you can just push the post straight through, there isn't much tissue there at 12 weeks so it shouldn't be too hard.

hmmmm.....i find this topic very amusing, its funny how people go on about causing pain on a 3 month old but yet we all immunise our own childern with a needle. I find piercing babies ears is a personal choice for the parent.

Im all for piercing babies ears, my mother had my ears pierced when i was 3 months old and i dont remember any pain from when i was that young nor do i remember having any infections. I also have a 5 yr old daughter and i got her ears pierced at 4 months, and yes it was with a piercing gun, they never got infected and i have always taught her to not play with them or take them out unless she asks me, she also loves her ears being pierced.

Im also pregnant with my 4th child and yes its a girl and yes i will be getting her ears pierced, and to be honest i dont care what people think about it, its my choice.  The other thing that is bugging me is that all you people have so much hate for someone who wishes to get her daughters ears pierced but i bet if you all went to a play group a discussed this topic you wouldn't be so rude to her about it. So much for trying to teach our kids about internet bullying and not to do it or be a victim, when parents on here are doing a good job in teaching them to bully instead of having a geniune opinion.

Please please please do not compare vaccination with earpiercing, it is the most annoyingly frivolous analogy ever. huh.gif

As they say 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' and I have never seen a baby or toddler who'd I describe as more beautiful because they are embellished with earings......the opposite IMO.

My bold. You do realise that babies are vaccinated in order to stop them catching/spreading contagious illnesses, right? Not just for sh*ts and giggles because you think it looks cute? It's not a very good comparison...

Anywho, I'm totes getting my name tattooed on my DS 15months neck in a swirly handwriting font, it will look amazeballs with his rose/dolphin ankle tatt. Can anybody recommend a good tattooist?

Yes, many things are done with needles. Ear piercing, vaccinations, intra-articulate joint injections, tattoos, navel rings, central lines. They are all pretty much the same aren't they STBG?

I can't believe people compare ear piercing to vaccination...they are nowhere near similar.

OP, please, please do not pierce your precious babies ears.  Bubs are beautiful and do not need jewellery!  There is nothing cute about a baby with pierced ears.  Its cruel & unnecessary.

haaaaa!!!  i have to laugh.. parents are going to pierced their babies ears weather anyone agrees with anyones opinon or not. oh and i wasnt compairing with the vaccination it self, it was more the fact its done with a needle. babies are born every day and from their second day of life they are poked with needles what difference is getting their ears pierced make? apart from having a stud in each ear.  i also have to laugh that no one argued about the bully !  goes to prove im right you just cant help your self .

Do you really not see the difference? Really?

As for your comment re. bullying - most folks do tend to get a bit hot under the collar when discussing the body modification of a baby. Fair enough, I reckon. It might help change a parents mind, when they see how barbaric and unnecessary it is, not to mention the risks involved.
