Ear pins look so pretty on babies, but we all know it comes with lot if pain😑
For baby Adya I wanted to do ear piercing, but was confused as when to do it, what is the right time for doing ear piercing for baby?
I got my ears pierced when I was big enough to understand what’s happening to me, and took around a week to get back to normal. So for Adya I was tensed when to do her ear piercing.
So when should we do ear piercing for baby?
Suggested by Doctor – within a year is good and same is my personal experience with Adya. I got her ear pierced when she was around 8 months old.
✔ Baby skin is soft and easy for piercing.
✔ Heals faster and less chances of infection.
✔ Baby is unaware of what is going on and forgets fast, so she will not touch her ears again and again, risk of pulling ear pin is less.
✔ Baby have small hairs so no risk of getting stuck in hair.
After her ear piercing I was prepared for lot of comments like why have you done it so early!! You should have wait for at least a year or more, believe me it was the best decision I took as the pain she had last only few minutes and she was normal after that.
SHARING SOME TIPS FROM MY EXPERIENCE
✔ HOLD baby tight as she many try to push hard and pin position may effect.
✔ Be strong as, to see baby in pain is really hard, I almost cried as I was holding her.
✔ We have two options serialized steel pin or gold pin we opted gold one as we don’t want to change again so early.
✔ Cost for gold pin was INR 1600 with piercing at gold shop.
✔ Sterilized steel pin cost INR 400.
✔ Gold pin can be done only with manual option, steel pin can be done with piercing Gun.
✔ Doctor was charging INR 2000 for the same.
✔ Apply coconut oil or ghee (clarified butter) with turmeric powder for a week for healing fast.
✔ Keep checking the ear pin cover as it tends to loose and might fall if not tighten properly, we have already lost one😑.
