I'm wanting to get my baby's ears pierced but my husband is against it. How do you recommend for me to convince him? She is almost 3 months old.

      It's a decision between the two of you. But personally I would wait if he's against it. It is for sure something she can have done later and if he isn't onboard it's not worth the argument... or at least, it wouldn't be to me.
        I was unsure about when to pierce our daughter's ears. However, at her two months check and shots, I asked our ped. She said this was this a good age and if they cry, it is because of being restrained or the noise of the piercing instrument. She gave me some suggestions for moms having their daughter's ears pierced. They helped me find the right person and place.

        Took her to where our ped said they were the most professional with training and experience. In less than minute after both piercings were done, she was smiling. She cried A LOT longer during the dot drawing and cleaning. I almost thought it was too good to be true (I'm sure it did hurt!) so I walked around with her crying for less than a minute but sure enough, she was fine! We decided just to head home and we were in the car about 5 minutes and she was asleep!

        It went waaaay better than expected and so far so good! I have to clean them 3-4 times a day and twist them around and push them in and out a bit but she doesn't seem to mind. She lets me do it each time I change her diaper and no problems!

        If any moms would like our peds tips, then write me an e-mail.
