Your doctor should be able to pierce your baby’s ears for you, at least your doctor should be able to tell you where you can get them pierced.  Here are some safety guide lines that you may find useful as well.

Infection is probably your worse fear.  A poorly sterilized needle may cause infection, or just getting dirt in the open sore.  Make sure you clean the ear with rubbing alcohol, and contact your doctor if it swells or leaks pus.  While the person piercing your child’s ears won’t care too much about what you’re going to do afterwards, they may care if the child has had tetanus shots.  See your doctor first and make sure your child has the appropriate shots.

Another reason to see your doctor before getting your child’s ears pierced is to determine if your child is allergic to any metals.  If you pierce your child’s ear with gold or silver they may have a reaction, you don’t want to have to take the earring out early.

You’ll also have to ensure your child is careful with their earrings; they don’t want to catch them on anything while running at full speed.

Last but not least, don’t pierce your baby’s ears with a piercing gun.  The damage to the cartilage in your ear is much more severe with the violent action of a piercing gun.  A professional should use a needle; it’s less painful and will look better in the long run.

    See when you take your baby to get her ears pierced, can you ask them to take a gun to your head at the same time? Thanks 🙂

    Your child is not a fashion accessory. Why would you want to inflict pain on her to dress her up like a doll? Most parents would do anything they can to protect their children from being hurt, not go out their way to do it.

    I think I’ve said enough here.

    Yours sincerely
    A loving mother who hates seeing her children in pain and thinks they are beautiful without sparkly ears.

    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.

    When a New Baby is lying in your arms, you start to imagine his or her future. They are beautiful, kind little people with dreams of changing the world for the better. You want your precious angel to have gems hanging off of her ears but you know do not know when the right time is.

    The best time to pierce your baby’s ears is with in the first few months because a baby’s senses are not yet fully developed so they will not be aware of the pain for a long period of time. Some babies do not feel the ear piercing at all. You can get your baby’s ears pierced the week you take her out of the hospital, so it is not the time to pierce a child’s ears that you want to worry about. What’s more important is where you get it done.

    Initially, I was unsure too and worried what others would say if I was “one of those moms who pierced their baby’s ears.” I 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.Her comment to me about wanting to pierce my dd’s ears was that I was a smart mommy for doing it early when I could care for them. When I heard this, I was relieved about worrying what others would say and tool her the next day to have them pierced 🙂

    When you create your checklist for new baby one of the thing you want to add is to research a good ear-piercer. Children fidget and cry so make you choose an experienced piercer that has done infant ears before. I have friends that got their ears pierced as a baby and their holes are crooked or uneven. Your children will have to live with these piercings for their whole life so you really want to make sure you know what you are doing and who you are trusting to pierce her.

    My ped and I cannot emphasize the importance of finding the most experienced person to pierce your baby’s ears. How do you find out how long they have been piercing ears? You ask them! Asking the manager or asst manager at places like Claire’s, Piercing Pagoda or Merle Norman will usually lead you immediately to the right person. How to judge once you’ve arrived with your baby to have her ears pierced?

    Three things on your list should be 1) sanitation, 2)experience, 3)and patience are the most important things to look for in the shop and ear-piercer themselves.

    If any moms would like any of our ped’s care tips for infants, then don’t hesitate to write me an e-mail.
