Baby ear piercing

Ear pins look so pretty on babies, but we all know it comes with lot if painπŸ˜‘

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.


βœ” Baby skin is soft and easy for piercing.

βœ” Heals faster and less chances of infection.

βœ” 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.

βœ” 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.


βœ” HOLD baby tight as she many try to push hard and pin position may effect.

βœ” Be strong as, to see baby in pain is really hard, I almost cried as I was holding her.

βœ” We have two options serialized steel pin or gold pin we opted gold one as we don’t want to change again so early.

βœ” Cost for gold pin was INR 1600 with piercing at gold shop.

βœ” Sterilized steel pin cost INR 400.

βœ” Gold pin can be done only with manual option, steel pin can be done with piercing Gun.

βœ” Doctor was charging INR 2000 for the same.

βœ” Apply coconut oil or ghee (clarified butter) with turmeric powder for a week for healing fast.

βœ” Keep checking the ear pin cover as it tends to loose and might fall if not tighten properly, we have already lost oneπŸ˜‘.

Happy Ear piercing 😊Flaunt your baby pics with lovely ear pins.πŸ’š

  1. Though it pains your little one, mother feels the pain….I think thats the beauty of mother child relationship. I feel gun shot has made it much better. Less chance for infections


  2. It’s quite informative and helpful topic.. I remembered mine experience of piercing was worst I was 8 years when I got piereced and got infection also,so
    I thought it’s good to pierce your what as early as possible..


  3. My husband and I took both our daughters to have their ears pierced at three months old. No problems as far as my family are concerned and both girls have loved the fact that they have always worn earrings. From their point of view, their little gold studs have always been part of them. If you are thinking about piercing your baby daughters’ ears, I would say ‘go for it!’ You won’t regret it and your girls will thank you for it.
