ear piercing

So we have been talking about getting Giada's ears pierced but I don't want it to get infected.. I think she is at the perfect age for it but it's always that fear...but I think I should do it not then when she gets older....

    She's only 6 months..know I myself have always been very sensitive to certain earrings and when I was young they always got infected. .I don't know if it would happen to her too.

      I was 8 when I got my ears pierced. My parents wanted me to really want the responsibility. Nothing proves that your really want something more then saying you're willing to go through a bit of pain to get it. It really wasn't so bad and I took good care of them.

      Until I joined martial arts 4 years later and stopped wearing them because I didn't want them getting ripped out. My holes closed up and now I can't wear earrings at all.

        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.
