    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!

    Thank you thank you thank you...

    No creams or anything were used when my daughters' ears were pierced, but they were 7 and 4 not 7 months.

    Can I ask a genuine question...how come you got your 4 month old done, but waited until your other daughter was 2 because that was when she asked you to have it done. Why did one get the choice and the other didn't?
    One was my first child second was my 3rd

    You want to check the place out before you get it done and make sure that everything is cleaned properly. There was a place on the sunshine coast where i got my ears pierced the same day as my SIL, she got hers done first and me second and it was only after we left we realised they didn't clean the gun after each use (We saw the person after me go in and get them done without cleaning the gun or the bench where you sit and they put the gun down at all)... We got bad infections after those piercings but i've never had an infection from ear piercings anywhere else.

    got my DD (age 4yr) ears pierced last year, she was done with the gun, they did one ear and then she freaked out and wouldn't let them do the other for around 45mins. in the end i sorta had to hold her down and get them to do it. She refused to leave the shop til the other was done but was afraid of it. She didn't have any infection because the girl cleaned the gun before and after use.


    I wouldn't bother with numbing cream, the feel of it and the noise of it (if you use the gun) will probably be more scarey then any pain. Just have something to distract your little one.

    I used to get infections a fair bit when I was younger and they are also incredibly uneven, one hole sits a lot higher than the other and it really irritates me. I got slammed on here the last time I complained about my uneven ear holes, but it honestly bothers me. I wish Mum had of waited
    Im so sorry to hear that yours ear holes are uneven .
    And you were slammed for talking about it on bh!!?? thats just horrible !

    Personally i wouldn't use the needle, i saw it done with my SIL when she got her nose done and it looks way more painful then the gun. Id get them done with the gun, they generally say to do both sides at once, but IMO if one is done slightly before the other they could be done uneven- i heard from a friend that when she got her daughters ears done as a baby, one was done slightly before the other, and the second one wasn't even before her daughter moved and they didn't have a proper grip on her ear.

    Maybe she means that she thought it through by the time she was onto her third child. Sorry GothChick, I have nothing against you but this seems like you're picking a fight
