My origional post was NOT as to whether I should get DDs ears pierced. It was about using emla, for which I have got great replies and have deicded to use it.
Thanks to everyone for advise on the guns.
As to people who think i should wait till DDs older,(they are ''disgusted'', ''for parent pleasure '', etc) , I didnt ask for what age to get it done so please dont judge other ppl.
I can see this will turn nasty so if a mod wants to close this thread than please do!
