    hi all,
    my DD is 8 months old. We are planning to pierce her ears. Already consulted to paed, she said ok to do now and she advised to do from skin or surgery docs. Now the problem is that here most of the people do it from jeweller (sonara) and my in laws advice to do so as hard to find doctor who does piercing. I wonder is it safe and won't cause any infection? Is 8 months early for ear piercing? Pls advice.
    Thanks

    8 months should be fine. As per Kerala Customs the piercing is done when the baby is 28 days old(eeks...).Go to soem renowned jewellery shop and they would have persons to do the Ear piercing. You can try Gun shot method as it is lil pain less

    Hi,
    I was as worried as u were when it came to my DD's ear piercing. It was done by a goldsmith at home with gold wires after she completed 6 months. Now its been a month and a half since that and I m glad it was done at home. Better to get done when they are young as ear lobes are tender and its easy to hold their head. Later it might become a lil more difficult. And because the lobes are tender, the sterilised wires just pierce through without any issues. My DD cried for abt 15 min after both ears were pierced and was fine after that. We were able to distract her with some toy. Also, if u are getting gold wires, make sure u get small dangling ones which wont prick when they sleep.
    Hope ur DD has a safe and smooth ear piercing ceremony :)

    Thanks all, i get more confidence to pierce her ears now.

    Thanks Bril..
    It's a nerveous feeling. You're right, better to do when she's small.. Give love to your DD..
