I always said if I had a girl I would get them done as a baby.
But because there are sooooo many judgmental people out there I don't think I would. I think it's disgusting that so many people judge other mothers/parents by a pair of earrings..
I had mine done when I was very young and I even had an accident with mine... ( Involving a sleeper ring, a bangle and a swing set.) however I still love them and if I didn't I would just take them out... No hassle? No worries? And no blame! I think they look pretty on young girls and def spare gender confusion.
So yes while I love them and def would consider getting a daughters ears pierced while quite young I probably wouldn't because there are too many nosy, judgmental and nasty people out there that do have problems with it.
I loved you before I ever met you <3

I wouldn't have DD's done either, I'm not a fan of ear rings at all, I had mine done as a baby but I haven't worn ear rings since I left high school many years ago.
Thanks mum - said me never.

I seriously dont get why people get upset with opinions with these topics. We all have an opinion, just,because someone doesnt like or agree with something, shouldnt stop you from doing it!

I don't like the look of it on little ones, so won't be getting dd's ears done til she asks.

DD's adult teeth are coming through now and, as suspected, she's going to have her mummy's overcrowding issues and will need extensive orthodontic work as she grows up. I had this done myself where my jaw was slowly widened over about 2 years, it hurt like hell, constant aching etc and I will definitely put her through this pain.
If I still had the teeth I had when younger (45 degree buck on the front ones, couldn't shut my lips etc) there is no way I would have had the opportunities in life that I have had. A great smile or beautiful eyes is something we all like, warm to quickly and these things open many doors (or turn people away when the opposite is true). This level of judgement on looks is human instinct - it goes well beyond concious thought - especially when it's "first impressions" things.
IMO the operation you are chosing for your DD to have goes well beyond school teasing, this is an appearance factor that could impact negatively on her for the rest of her life.
Not even close to ear piercing IMO which is an optional extra.

I expect I'll hold off if and until my little girl wants them...then go for it. I take no issue with what other people do.
I hazard a guess that people would often be less inclined to criticise the cultural adornment practices of, say, an African tribe, which may often be much more extreme. We respectfully say "that's their culture". The piercing of female earlobes is a common part of our culture in Australia (and particularly babies in the case of Australians from some cultural groups), but we can be so judgmental about it.

yep, i had my dd's done when she was 3 months old. and i couldn't care less who thinks it's ''trashy'' etc..strangers opinions are irrelevant.

I view all body piercing in the same way. Boy or girl, ear lobe, eyebrow or nostril.
Not my body, not my choice.
Trashy doesn't come into it for me. I think it's much worse than simple bad taste.
