Hi Robyn

I had my little girls ears pierced when she was 3 months. It was done by a haidressing salon that had 2 piercing guns so they were done in 1 shot. Keisha only cried for about 2 mins. She was fine for the rest of the day. I was worried about the studs as she sleeps on her side but she has had no problems and even sleeps 10 hours night. She is now 6 months and her ears are fine. I think the earlier the better most places say they wont do it before 12 months but ring around I found beauty salons will also do young ones. Good Luck
