Piercing baby’s ears? My family’s pressuring me! What should i do?

Thoughts on piercing your child’s ears at infancy? My family’s pressuring me to piercing my daughters ears because ‘it’s cute and no one can tell if she’s a boy or girl without earrings’.

I want to wait until she’s old enough to tell me she wants them pierced – I don’t find it right to punch holes in a child’s ears for the sake of strangers needing to know if they’re a boy or girl.

e strong, remember she’s YOUR baby and who cares if you can’t tell just now, if she’s happy and healthy that’s all that matters. 😀 it’s unnecessary pain you’d be putting her through. I remember being 6 yrs old saying mummy can I get earrings? And she told me it would hurt but I did it and loved having earrings! My brother got his daughters ears pierced and he had to clean them all the time and it was hurting her. No need. 😀
