A couple of weeks ago we decided to get baby girls ears pierced when she was 4 months old. I was super nervous! I know everyone says the pain is temporary but OMG! I thought it was going to go terribly wrong. We hired a company that comes to your house to pierce the infants ears. We thought it would be more comfortable for the baby. The nurses came in and were very nice. We first picked out which earrings we wanted and then it WAS GO TIME! I had the baby sit in Drew’s lap because I didn’t want her to think I caused her the pain lol.
The nurse used the marker to mark where the earrings would go, and then got her in position. After she squeezed the gun the baby’s eyes enlarged and she screamed! The nurse quickly pierced the other ear and she was done before we knew it. She probably cried for a total of 2 minutes and then was back to her happy self.
Naturally, you don’t want your children to feel any pain but we had to get those ears pierced! We clean the piercings everyday with hydrogen peroxide and turn the earrings. So far, so good!
