My girls have to wait til high school.
DD1 asked about it a lot bet 4 and 6 but we said no. She stopped asking. She's nearly 8 now and has forgotten all about it.
Kids ask for stuff all the time. Doesn't mean their ready for it or have the ability to make decisions about it.

Not something I would consider, my beautiful babies are born perfect just as they are

Before my DD was born I looked into where I could get her ears pierced at 6 weeks so I could get it done early. Then she was born and I changed my mind completely! She is now almost 3 still not pierced and won't be for a long time. She is perfect without any need for enhancements and it goes against every part of me to hurt her for something unnecessary.

I wouldn't go altering my childrens bodies without their consent. Once they are old enough to express their desire for a piercing, I have no problem.
DS requested one at 5 and I allowed it.

Not something I would ever do. They need to wait until they are old enough to understand what is happening and to keep them clean etc.
I personally don't think they look nice on babies at all.

Nope dont like it.
When dd is old enough to request it AND look after them properly herself then id consider.
I was 11 so wouldnt until at least then anyway

It looks awful on little kids and I would never do that to my daughter. If she wants pierced ears she will have to wait till she is old enough to get herself to the piercer and pay for it herself.

I personally wouldn't get my babies ears pierced. And this has nothing to so with bodily autonomy or anything like that, I just think it makes babies look grown up and I like to keep mine young for as long as possible.
My DD1 got her ears pierced when she was 3 because she kept asking and asking and asking. It hardly phased her. She loves them and they look very cute

When my dd is old enough to understand the whole process and their care then she can have it done. A purely cosmetic body modification is not something I will push on her.

I think unless it's for cultural reasons, it's ridiculous. Why can't we just let babies be babies? Let them make up their own mind whether they want to pierce their ears when they're old enough to. It's not our body to do what we want with.
