    You can get both ears done at the same time with a needle. Just sayin'

    I wouldn't touch a gun with a 10ft pole. LOL.

    Gothchick, with regards to the needle, do they poke the needle through, then slide it out as the stud slides in? (like how they did my Monroe (you sound like you know your piercings!))?

    I agree that it should be done the safest way, but... Who could do that to a baby?! It sounds like a long process that I can't imagine a bub taking without a fight!

    FYI, this is no bash on the OP, More like it sounds like op has a choice between quick and less hygienic, or drawn out but more hygienic :-/

    yep i used Emla cream on my daughters ears when they were done at 2.5years and she didn't even flinch i think it was the best idea. you need to put it on at least 30minutes before though and even longer if you can.

    good luck

    That's why no matter how much safer the needle is, I wouldn't be putting my baby through it until they are much older.
    This is a very accurate description here...

    You fit the earring into the end of the needle so it just slides right in, there is no 'removing of the needle and then having to put the earring in'like some people think...its one fluid motion once the needle is in.

    Using a needle is a quick process as well. It's not like they ever so slowly push the needle through the skin, they do it quick.

    I'm not coming back in this thread, just incase someone asks me a question, I'm not being rude not answering.

    I'm just afraid if I bite my tongue any harder i'm going to draw blood.

    Before you get your babies ears pierced, do some research. It is after all a cosmetic procedure.

    There is no way on earth that I would let a piercing gun anywhere near my children.

    Please, do some research.. See what can and does go wrong with piercing guns. That could be your baby.
