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.

I didn’t with my kids. It’s unfair to make them suffer just to avoid a question. I had so many issues bc no one knew I was allergic to gold so my ears just stayed infected. I was 4 so I could at least say it hurts.
I also took my younger one to the store dressed in frilly pink clothes with headband and someone still commented how cute my little boy is. Earring won’t change that lol.
