I had my ears pierced at 3 months, my sister had hers done at 2 months. It's a traditional thing in our family and culture. We're not traumatised and we love wearing earrings. We both got extra piercings when we were older.
I've always maintained that, if I had a girl, she'd have her ears pierced at 2-3 months. I don't see anything wrong with it.

Totally against it for many reasons, including: 1) I don't like them at all. Doesn't look 'cute' to me, looks wrong. 2) I wouldn't inflict pain on my child for no reason other than to please myself, its just not my parenting style. 3) The whole 'my child, my choice' thing doesn't really work for me, pretty sure as the ears in question are not actually yours, that logic is just stupid. That said, my child is cute enough without requiring body modification

I guess I just dont see the big deal (with the EAR piercing). And look Ive had 4 ear rings in each ear - I dont get why people are saying it scars and and doesnt heal?? I have only 1 in each ear now and you can not see a single mark in my ears?
FTR I dont have my girls ears pierced, nor do I intend too - however Im just saying its not up to me to judge other parents who decide that they do want to pierce their childs ears.
Anyway we will go around in circles - I get your passionately oppossed to it, I guess Im just not.

Our experiences also shape our opinions. So someone whose had their ears pierced at a young age and suffered pain etc from them, is more likely to be opposed to her own child having it done than someone who had it done and had no issues?

How would you feel about someone piercing their infant boy's ears? Or an infant girl's eyebrow? I don't see a distinction between these and piercing an infant girl's ears, so perhaps that gives you an insight into how I feel about it.

Until I saw the argument on Facebook I have never given it any thought. To be honest I don't really notice whether kids have earrings or not. I think I must have gotten off lightly when I got DD done she didn't cry or play with them at all. Now however I am internally cringing at what people must have thought when I took her to get them done. I do agree that it isn't right to think of young children as trashy

I just took this pic on my iPhone so it's not great... But you can clearly see my second and third holes.
I haven't worn earrings in those holes since my early twenties... I would guess 15 years.ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1367288587.488084.jpg
