    Hi Samar. DD2 had hers done at 6 weeks. No cream. Double gun. No tears at all lol.
    DD3 was done at 4 months. Again no cream and no tears. She startled a little from the guns but didnt cry.
    No infections or scabs on either girl. DD2 is 4 now and they have always been wonderful.
    I did DD1 at age 3 and she wouldnt let me clean them without a fuss so took them out. She asked to have them done again for 9th birthday. No cream used and she cleaned them herself with no problems.
    Good luck with your little one :-)

    the thread is not about whether i (or other ppl) should or should not ask their child whether to pierce their ears.
    I would appreciate it if posters stick to the origional topic/question.

    the emla certainly wouldn't hurt, if anything it would give you some peace of mind. Good luck- little girls with ear piercings look sooo cute!!

    I don't think the Emla is 100% effective though? Surely bubby would still feel some pain? And be abit frightened?
