oh whatever. Babies don't remember the first year or so anyway, so get them pierced now if you want it to be as painless as possible. The only thing that would deter me is that with so much care a baby needs, not sure if I'd wanted the added responsibility of caring for the ears as well.

Default Claire's at La Cantera

Thanks for the recommendations. I took my 12 year old to Claire's at La Cantera. The young woman I spoke to on the phone said most employees have been there for years and do an average of 20 piercings a day. It looked pretty sanitary and she took her time making sure they were even.

This is exactly why I'm against piercing kids. I would let them decide when they're old enough to understand it. And since it's just a pinch, it's not a traumatic thing. They can't make this permanent decision about their own bodies when they're babies.

Should we wait and let our sons grow up to decide if they want a circumcision. My sister in law made the same comment you did when we had our daughter's ears pierced but she didn't hesitate to have her son circumcised when he was born.
