The other thing I can suggest in a 4 month old is sucrose (we use a pharmacy mixed solution of sugared water when we take bloods/give injections in under 12 month olds) so if she takes a dummy I would mix up a bit of sugar in boiled water and give that about 1-2 min prior. It sends the baby into a sugar high for 3-5 min blocking the pain receptors. (we usually give 0.5-1ml so not a huge amount then pop a dummy in).
    Thanks for the info ! really appreciate it . I asked the pharmacist today and he said they dont stock angel cream as people tend to prefer emla. he said with the age limit, below 3 months they advise not to but after that its pretty safe, often doctors in hospitals tend to prefer it .

    Why dosen't everyone stop making such a big deal about this ? Everyone has their own personal experiences etc & have formed their opinions based on that but all the OP was really asking about was wether to use the numbing cream or not, not IF her daughter was an appropriate age based on other's opinions & blah blah blah, i'm sure she is old enough to decide what is is best for HER daughter without people getting on here & being judgemental & rude & i'm sure she was able to make a decision by now judging from the number of responses ...

    OP - Have you had your daughter's ears pierced yet ? I hope she went ok & i bet her earrings look gorgeous
