She did ask me before I got mine done could she get them and I said yes, but I thought it was necessary to explain how its done (this is a child that needs to know these things) and she then said she didn't want to do it.
So I had her come watch them do mine as I wanted to show her that it didn't make me writhe around in pain. Lol
However... I assumed they'd use a gun and it would be over with a click.... And they instead used clamp things and a big long needle, and there was a drip of blood. Dd freaks about blood... And she said it made her feel sick in the stomach watching it... So I fear that instead of making it not so bad to get done I've just scared her off for many years!! laugh
Oh well, it doesn't bother me, whenever she wants to is fine by me!
So unless my DD asks to get hers done n knows what she wants I Won't bother. It's her body, her choice grin
When/if I have girls, I will wait until they ask, or when they're "old enough" ask them if they want them.. A friend got her girls ears done well before she was 1, and I just personally don't like the idea of that, as they don't have a choice.
I also got my DD done at 3 months old.
I they don't do them until they are 6 months old now.
I think it better to get them when they are little as they
will not play with the new ear stud.
I would have more but my body reject them & gets lumps around them
so I only have 1 set.
