I think it's a difference in opinion...

I think it's a difference in opinion for everyone. I was dogged by a lot of my husbands family about why I wouldn't get my daughters ears pierced when she was little. I asked her pediatrician and she said it was at my own discretion but she didn't recommend it. She had a friend who was also a pediatrician and he got his daughters ears pierced as a baby and she ended up pulling the earring out and choking on it. She said that's what scared her out of piercing her oldest daughters ears as a baby. So I agree about waiting until they're old enough to ask for it and also my parents didn't let me get my ears pierced early either.

    Hi Nicole,

    As you stated it is a difference in opinion and to each it's own. Hope your morning is going well.

      Hi nicole,
      I agree with you on that. It is a diffrence of opion. I mean only the parents of that baby know whats best for the baby. In my opion thiugh i would say no it isnt safe. The baby could pull on the earring or may get hold of the earring and choke on it. Have a nice day.
