…to pierce a baby’s ears?
This cute little chubster is about to get her ears pierced. Isn’t she gorgeous and squidgeable?
The parents who took her to have it done say;
‘It was suggested to us that we pierce her ears early so that she would not remember the pain.’
Another woman who had her babies ears peirced recently said,
‘Did she cry? Yes for a split second. Do I regret it? No.
‘My daughter loves her earrings and she sees herself as batman with pretty ears. It’s much easier to get them done as a baby than when they’re older. Fact.
‘She looks beautiful in her earrings, and she loves to change her earrings when mummy does and wears all different ones.
How many parents force children to go through painful cosmetic surgery on the NHS for vanity reasons? Is that child abuse too?
‘Port wine birthmarks mostly cause no problems but parents choose to put children through painful laser surgery for vanity reasons. Ears pinned back, another unneeded surgery for vanity. If you declare vanity as child abuse, at least roll it across the board.’
Personally, I had my ears pierced when I was a baby so I don’t remember anything, but is that the point? The women above talk about ear piercing as though it is a necessary life-saving procedure. Surely if the child wants their ears pierced they will do it when they are old enough as they do with tattoos and cosmetic surgery? And surely with the first mom’s logic why not get little Bubba tattooed early also…remember when we discussed the mother that DID do that here?
So is this really at best a vanity procedure for the mothers? And if it is, is it okay as it’s just a harmless little thing to make Mom happy?
Folks What Say You?!
I’m not 100% either way on this one, yet I was very decided about the baby who was tattooed. We pierced chublings don’t remember the pain of course but why is this even necessary?
The baby does indeed cry for only a few minutes and with a few jingling keys are distracted and the pain is more or less forgotten pretty quickly.
Have you pierced your little cherub?
