i had my ears pierced when i was two.. i plan to have my future babies ears pierced then too.. if its a girl angelee is right, i have 8 piercings in my ears and the only ones that dont grow over are the ones i was pierced with when i was 2... all my other ones just to take them out and clean them i have to re pierce them all.. so i have a time limit of 30 mins or less.. before the backs actually close.. i also have a needle with me so i can pop it through.. pierces really do not hurt at all.. all of my ear piercings were basically painless.. the excepting would be my eyebrow becuse the ladie twisted the needle as she dropped the piercing on the floor
While i dont agree with piercing babies ears and its a commen practice that alot of mothers have done and its seen as socially acceptable. Its about as painful for the baby as having a shot. I personally wouldnt cause my baby daughter any physical pain that wasnt neccasary and is just for physical apperance, but i suppose some mothers done mind. That being said, i also dont agree with circumcisions of infant boys. I dont quite understand why its so socially acceptable to remove a piece of your child when its not medically neccasary. To each their own though...they are not my children
Some people believe the child’s ears should be pierced at a young age because it’s less painful when done at that age (they won't even remember it), piercing their ears at early an age solves the gender identification problems, and when they are older their holes will be less likely to close up.
Also, some think small kids look cute and fashionable with earrings.
In some places...it’s customary to have ears pierced at an early age.
I wouldnt say an ear piercing was practically painless for a baby. a baby doesn't understand whats going on do they? they are in shock and they've just had a machine gauge holes in to there flesh. i totally disagree with it. why on earth do you need to "sexy up" a baby or even a child. Kids grow up too fast they have no inocence anymore and by no means will a lobe piercing improve their life!
An ear piercing is a practically painless procedure that is quite common. If you're into being judgemental, why not ask how parents could have their child circumcised, or, worse yet, have an ab.ortion. Having a baby's ear's pierced is, by no means, a method of determining their ability to be a good parent.
I agree. I got my ears pierced when I was two days old (it was offered at the hospital). It is a custom in my culture as well as many others and I am glad I got my ears pierced when I was young.
The ear piercing is no big deal in my opinion.It is very cute on a baby for those also who have no hair yet they don't want their kid mistaken for a little boy lol.
It's custom in many places. And I don't see what the problem is? I'm glad my mother got my ears pierced when I was a baby, or I'd probably be without pierced ears.
