    I didn't use any cream on dd and she got hers done just after her 1st bday with the gun (both done at once) she was perfectly fine and walked out the shop waving and smiling! We haven't had any problems at all!!

    Nah just worded badly, I honestly didn't understand what she meant.

    Personally I wouldn't do it to my bub. I was 7 when I asked if I could get my ears done. I got my nose pierced at 16 with a gun and it was fine.

    On another note, I took DP's 15yo sister to get her lip pierced the other day and they didn't even ask her for ID Her mum had said it was ok, the first place we went to wouldn't do it unless she was with a parent though. Second place, no worries...

    Hi just wanting to say Emla cream can't be used under 12 months of age. There are other contraindications such as eczema as well...

    Really? Like I said, no numbing cream/gel/spray was used for my dd, but she was older when hers were done. She is turning 9 and has only had them just over a year. But why is Emla cream not to be used?

    The manufacturers directions on Emla from the guide they give to hospitals does state over 12 months. We use a different cream called Angel cream on younger babies but I'm not sure if you can buy from the chemist. 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).
