How do you feel about piercing boys ears? My twins are almost 6 months and I wanted to pierce when they were 2/3 months. But almost everyone I say this out loud to thinks it's weird or wrong. I have seen plenty of boys with earrings and I think they look so cute. Opinions??

I don't think they are wrong. My mom had mine done at 2 months. But I wouldn't do my child's ear until the day comes where they ask me and they want it. It's a baby, what good are pierced ears to them..?

I'm against it wether it's a boy or a girl. I will let my daughter decide for herself if she wants hers pierced. But, if you do decide to get their ears pierced at least take them to a reputable piercer.

Personally, that's not my style. But the way I see it, you can always take them out. It's the same argument for girls, it's just that you don't see as many boys with earrings. When I was in high school, it was in style for boys to have their ears pierced. That was 5 years ago. Not sure how it is today.

There's nothing wrong with it. I have never thought about "I'll wait till my daughter asks for them" or "why are you trying to make decisions for you child's body" I pierced my daughters ears a week after her two month shots. If she doesn't like em, she can take them out. If she wants to be able to ask for her ears pierced she can ask for her second hole done. I got my ears pierced at 1 month. I see nothing wrong with it. If you want to do it, do it. Don't listen to others, it's your children!

My baby girl got hers at 2 months & looks so cute with them. As for a boy I don't think it's wrong if it's what you want for them. I personally wouldn't because I don't really like earrings on men & my SO doesn't either. When you go out in public people may automatically assume they're girl just because that's just how society is. Good luck!

I will add my little girl has been called "he" even with pierced ears & girly clothes so it doesn't really matter either way! Lol.

I think it's different for boys and girls...I got my daughters when she was one but for boys I would wait until they asked for it cuz typically boys don't have there ears pierced so they may not like it or get teased when there older

I would never pierce a boys ears. Ever. Maybe a girl. But I'd wait til older to reduce risk of infection.

I pierced my little girl's ears at 2 months but idk about boys an piercing I think I would leave it up to them to decide when older I would never encourage or do it myself especially not as babies (my opinion)

Do what YOU want. We pierced our sons ears at 4months. The earlier the better because once he is aware he will pull at them. Because we did it early it's like they aren't even there. I love it and I'm glad we did it early.

Since it's not the norm I would wait and let your sons decide for themselves.

Go for it! If it's ok for girls to have their ears pierced then it's ok for boys. Don't let people gender stereotype your child. You do what you want ;) The piercings heal quickly and are much less painful than circumcision. Not bashing circumcision, just using it as a reference.

I don't use the use for boys having it pierced but it's a preference just like girls just know that since its not common at such a young age for boys that you will be judged

I got my lo one ears pierced at 2 years after half a year I had to take them out cause she has ears like mine. They are very sensitive and keep getting infected when I put in certain earrings. I will let her decide when she gets older if she wants them done again. She wouldn't let me put them back in. It's up to you if you want them done.

I'm not opposed to piercing a babies ears. I had mine done as a baby but as I grew they ended up not lining up when I went to get my second holes so they all had to be repierced to line up. I'm waiting for my dd to ask. I don't think I would pierce my ds unless he asks. I've never seen a baby boy with piercings but don't let people decide for you. If you want to do it, go ahead.

In my personal opinion I would not pierce a boy's ears when he is a baby. If he wanted it when he was older then I would. I don't even have my daughter's pierced. To each their own though.
