I'll let her decide when she wants them. If it is 3 or 10 or 50. It's her choice.Chat Icon

Re: Moms of girls....

I didn't do either DD's ears but thought about it. But ultimately decided to let them choose for themselves. I got mine done when I was about 13 and i just remember it hurt so bad, but was so excited to get them done.

Re: Moms of girls....

I really wanted to get DD ears pierced at a young age (about 2-3 months before she realized what was going on) but her doctor would not do it until she was at least 6 months old. Now that DD is almost 11 months, she is so aware that we are in the doctors office and most times she loses her $hit as soon as we walk into the exam room. I now feel bad bringing her to them for something that is going to be a bit painful for something cosmetic/unnecessary. I am still trying to decide what to do.

Re: Moms of girls....

Not yet.

I was probably 7 or 8 when I had my ears pierced. Do I remember that it hurt? Yes...Do I remember getting a little infection and having to clean it? Yes.

But what I remember most, is going out for a "girls day" with my mom. Picking out the earrings, loving how I looked with them, going for ice cream afterwards.

And that is what I will give my daughter. She has a pair of diamond studs her Godmother gave her with a note that explains that just as she and I did, when DD is older, she and I can have a special day and go get her ears pierced.

Do I think she'd be upset if I'd pierced them as a baby? No. But bottom line for me, her body, her choice.

..being a mommy and being a wife!

Re: Moms of girls....

OK I am glad I am not alone in wanting her to make the decision herself.
I just HATE causing her pain- even though she won't remember any of this.
Shots are bad enough.

Thanks ladies for the opinions !

DD is almost two and I decided she will get them done when she asks us to get them pierced.

Jesss, duh.

Re: Moms of girls....

Yes. At their 3 month well visit they will have their ears pierced. 2 reasons. 1 because as identical twins different earings will aid on telling them apart. 2 I got my ears pierced when I was 7 and always wishes I had them done when I was a baby. Would have saved me the experience of the pain.

She can get her ears pierced when ever she asks and is ready. I'm leaving it up to her and will make a fun Mommy/Daughter lunch, shopping, ear piercing day of it when the time comes.

Same here. Not doing it until she asks for them! She is beautiful enough without them Chat Icon

Re: Moms of girls....

Personally, I do not like babies/toddlers with earrings. To me, it makes them not look like babies.

Re: Moms of girls....

My DD is 5 and still doesn't have them. I will wait until she asks and if I think she is old enough to care for them.

My mom wanted me to wait until I was 16, and then caved by the time I was 11.

My girls are 4 and 5 and I have no immediate plans to do so. Not a fan... When they want them (maybe Communion?), I'll take them and make an afternoon of it! Chat Icon

No, I'm not doing it until she asks for it. I'd like it to be her choice and also something she is excited for.

Nope-I have such a great memory of my nana taking me to the jewelry store to get them done, making a day of it when I was 7. I want Claire to have that tooChat Icon

Re: Moms of girls....

I never wanted her ears pierced until she was old enough to take care of them and know what to expect. With that said, she was 5.
