So far from cruel. I can think of things far worse then a simple ear piercing.

My personal opinion is that I'll wait until she's old enough to want it done. Maybe she'll never want it who knows. But I don't feel like I should alter her body without her consent. That being said I have no problem with moms who do it young.

That's always going to be very personal. I'm going to wait until my daughter can tell me she wants it done.

I worked in a jewelry store and saw many infants/babies get it done. It broke my heart.... But the little ones typically only cried for a minute or two. The older ones who were about 3-10 really worried me, because they had an idea of what was going on, and anticipated pain to an extent.....even though they were "ready". So it depends... And it's up to the parents.

Honestly, I think the argument is stupid. I did my daughters. Doesnt mean I'm cruel. If she doesnt want them when shes older, she can just not wear an earring. We did them at 3 months and have never had an issue.

It's not an argument. Just sharing our thoughts on the subject. I don't think it's cruel by any means and didn't say that. My best friend was very religious and said she wished her parents hadn't put holes in her body because it goes against her religious beliefs. Hearing her tell me that is what made me decide not to do it.

I'm just saying the argument about it is stupid. Some mothers are so outrageous about it, its stupid.

I'm getting my daughters ears pierced just like I had mine done. It's up to the parent. I don't think it's cruel, it's just an ear piercing. But to each his own. No argument or debate. Strictly up to parents

I don't see a problem with it. I had mine pierced at 6mos old, and had my daughter's pierced at 7mos. She was/is fine. If she doesn't want them later in life, then she can take them out. I get snarly looks and snide comments everywhere I go with her, and honestly I wish people would just mind their business when they notice her earrings. It was my choice and it's nobody else's place to put in their two cents AFTER the fact.

I did my daughters when she was 2 months & my hubby didn't want me to. If she doesn't want them she can take them off when she's older she didn't even feel it she didn't cry at all ๐

I see both sides! I want to get them done for my daughter who is 2 months but also I don't want to do them without asking her. I'll probably end up getting them for her later and if she doesn't want them years later we can remove them. Mine were done as a young girl and I never questioned my mom about it.

Husband and I have decided to have our daughters done at 3 months and if later on she doesn't want them we will take them out.. He and I feel that with getting them done early it will be easier for them to heal without her being older and aware of them to fiddle and get them infected .

I am waiting til my baby asks. It doesn't feel right to do it without her knowing/wanting it.

It's only cruel if the parents don't take care of the piercing and it gets badly infected. It's just poking not a hole through a very fleshy part of the ear. It can also be closed up if the earring is taken out. I never understood the harm in it. Most women have their ears pierced because it's a fashion statement. I was really mad at my mom for making me wait until I was 13 to get my ears pierced. I felt really left out amongst my friends.

I don't think it's cruel I say it's better when their babies cuz they won't remember the pain and if they don't like it when they get older they can always take it out

I had my ears pierced as a baby. I don't see any harm in it. I also had a 2nd piercing per ear as a teenager so I know it's pretty much painless. I probably won't pierce my babies ears mostly because my husband is totally against it, he thinks it should be a personal choice... Everyone has their own opinion, do what you want! ๐

I think it's heartbreaking, I can't even watch my babies get shots done. ๐๐ I think it's super cute though when other people get it done, I'm just waiting for when she tells me she wants it herself.
