Piercing Infant or Toddler Ears - Yay or Nay? What do YOU say?
I say "Nay" to infant ear piercings, but that's my decision. I'm not saying anyone else is wrong for saying "Yay", but that's my personal preference.
I know when I was little I kept asking and asking and asking and I was upset people had their ears pierced when they were babies. I felt so baby-ish. However, looking back I am glad that I was able to decide when I got my first piercings because it made me really think about getting my second pair. I feel that Lily should have a chance to choose what she wants to do with her life. I think when she's old enough to go with friends for a birthday bash or something similar that would be great.
It's Lily's life, so I'll let her live it up the way she wants. ...Within reason :)
I am also afraid that, with my luck, she would rip out the earrings and I wouldn't be able to figure it out or something. Maybe I'm paranoid. I'm scared of infections, too. I am ALL OVER that diaper rash. I just don't want any kind of discomfort I could have easily prevented.
She'll get her piercings when she's much older if she really wants them.
