2 month old son's ear pierced?

My son is 2months as most of you know, im thinking about having his left ear pierced, just a tiny diamond stud nothing huge, tacky or chavvy, personally I think it will look really cute. What do you guys think?

Answer #1

yes I would, but I would do both ears so thay are even. I have 4 piercings in each ear and I where them all the time

Answer #2

I think you should get both ears pierced

Answer #3

Hi bestfriend =D Look how people are going on lool =|… about he will look chavvy lol.. Well he’s had them pierced now anyway .. and my godson looks fakin beautiful still babes..Anyway im coming round yours later babe :) Give baby a kiss 4 me and stick the kettle on haha!.. Il ring you when im on my way Love you x x x x

Answer #4

I think you should wait until he is older and then ask him if he wants it done. Although my mums friend got her babys ears pierced and they look fine and dont bother her too much, your kid at the end of the day

Answer #5

wait till he’s older!!

Answer #6

I appreciate your comment ethmer but I am not using him as a little toy at all, he is his own person but then again that’s just like saying he cant wear a baby bangle becuase he might not like bangles, or not to have a lime green pushchair like he has because he wont like limegreen. if he doesnt like it when he gets a little older it can come out and WILL heal!! Its not exactly a tattoo. My nephew and lots of my cousins who are from newborn-2 all have there ears pierced and none of them have a problem

Answer #7

I hate to be so harsh, but when I and many other people think of chavs, one of the first things that come to mind are teen pregnancies. As for the earring well it’s not going to help the case.

Answer #8

A friend of mine had her baby’s ears pierced when she was 2 months old. I think it cute. You just have to remember to keep up with the cleaning and the rotation of the earring everyday. I had mine pierced when I was a year old.

Answer #9

I agree lanternoflight =] thanks for your advice.

Answer #10

I say dont do it yet..if he wants to get his ear peirced when hes older then let him

Answer #11

Up to you, but I reckon maybe you should wait til he’s older, and can make up his own mind. He’ll cry a lot cause I saw a baby have it done the other day, Why dont you let him make up his own mind, or just ask him when he’ll understand? Lol

Answer #12

The fact that you can consider putting any earring on an infant and not consider it to be tacky really reaffirms my faith in humanity’s ability to engage in self-delusion.

Why not really give the little guy a touch of REAL class and get him a Taz tattoo?

Answer #13

b1ff… im not chavvy in anyway at all so how can you say it will look chavvy for me 2 push him round with a earing in, im not exactly having a massive diamond am I!?

Answer #14

I reckon it’ll look cute as…and at a younger age at least they wont really no its there and the pain’ll be forgoten easily…go for it if it what you want dont wory bout what anyone else thinks at the end of the day its your choice init :)

Answer #15

I say do it if he doesnt like if when he is older it will always close

Answer #16

are you actually insane? 2 months old, what the hell is wrong with u? first of all he will get mistaken for a girl second of all guys shouldnt be wearing earrings, at least not as kids thirdly that leaves a permanent hole if kept for over a year or 2, I really dont think ull want your 7 year old son wanting to kill you because of the permanent hole in his ear that wont close because they are “for girls” even for girls, I am very much opposed piercing babies ears. its their bodies, not yours if they decide they want something pierced it is up to the parent to decide if it is right or not for them to do it, I’ve NEVER heard of the other way around! parents should not force piercings on kids as infants when they have no say, what the hell is wrong with u? and a BOY! honestly, you sound exactly like a stupid teen mother. and TWO MONTHS OLD, HONESTLY!!! will he be getting his nipples pierced for his 6 month old birthday?

what a chav kid.

Answer #17

I THINK ITS YOUR DECISION WETHER OR NOT YOU WANT TO PUT A EARING IN YOUR BABIES EAR. IF HE DOESNT LIKE IT WHEN HE GETS OLDER. HE CAN TAKE IT OUT AND THE HOLE WILL CLOSE UP. OTHER THEN THAT. DONT LISTEN TO WHAT ANYONE ELSE IS SAYING. HE MAY BE HIS OWN PERSON. BUT YOUR THE ONE THAT CREATED HIM AND MADE HIM 2 BE WHAT HE IS. ITS LIKE EXACTLY WHAT YOU SAID..HE DOESNT want to BE PUSHED AROUND IN A GREEN STROLLER because HE DOESNT LIKE THE COLOR. HE’S TO YOUNG TO KNOW ANYTHING OF THE SORT. HE’S YOUR BABY. DONT LET ANYONE ELSE TELL YOU WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR BABY. ITS YOUR DECISION. HALF THE PEOPLE ON HERE ARE STATING THEIR OPINION SAYING DONT DO IT. because THATS THEIR RELIGION OR THATS HOW THEY WERE BROUGHT UP 2 BE. ITS NOT THEIR CHOICE. SHE ASKED WHAT YOU THINK ! SHE SHOULD DO. NOT TELLING! HER WHAT 2 DO WITH HER SON !!

Answer #18

Thats good. I dont care what anyone says, babies are cute with or without earrings. Boy or girl. I’m glad you made your own choice. =-)

Answer #19

He’s had them pierced now , he didnt cry or anything he just flinched, I clean them twice a day and often rotate the earing when im just cuddling him :)

Answer #20

I used the solution and then after about a week used peroxide on her ears. It seemed to help a little bit more. Good luck and congratulations on your son.

I also wonder if everyone would be so hard on you if you were talking about a girl instead of a boy?…Just a thought.

Answer #22

oh god people calm down. people get their babies ears pierced alll the time. its best to get them when they are young. this is just ridiculous. all you nay sayers there is nothing wrong with it. just because he is a boy doesnt make a difference. why do parents pierce their baby girls ears. because it looks cute, and they like it. so what makes a mom an idiot just bcause the baby is not a girl. calm the fck down.

dont be so damn closeminded and uptight.

and he can always take it out. and if yall dont like it dont answer the question. get a life people. I say go for it. it will look cute

Answer #23

Simply a Rose to brighten your day,         And maybe lessen the cares in your way;         And also, too, to help you to know,         That in knowing you, many others grow!

  Don’t do it. He’s not your little toy to decorate to the level of cuteness that YOU like. He is his own person and should be allowed to grow up and have some choices for himself.

Answer #24

tacky!! a 2 month old baby? what would you do if he pulled it out?

Answer #25

babybump! you can’t do that, he’s your son and he has to live with his body forever, not you…

you can’t scar your baby because you want to!

you have a right to care and love him, you don’t have a right to stick jewellary through his body for no reason when he doesn’t have a choice if he wants it or not!!

I’m really diapointed that you’re thinking it!

Answer #26

I would have to say NO, puting an earing on and infant espashly one that is only 2months old is a BAD IDED. the latest you should put a hold through a living being is when they are about 2 years old.

Answer #27

He’s your son, if you want to then do it. Nobody else’s opinion should matter.

Answer #28

Simply a Rose to brighten your day,         And maybe lessen the cares in your way;         And also, too, to help you to know,         That in knowing you, many others grow!

  You would be “branding” him and he would have to live with it and allow it to be part of what formats his being until he reaches an age of maturity (probably around 11 to 13) where he could decide for himself.

What’s next, are you going to pierce his tongue because some members of society may find that cute and he would suffer less by having it done now rather than when he get older. He can always remove it and let it heal when he gets older!

Answer #29

I think it would look really sweet! I still not gotten my daughters ears pierced and she is now 9 months old. I am still waiting for her FATHER to go get them done. lol I do not want to be there, when she does. My daughter barely crys, unless shes getting a needle and , ears pierced? .. do not want to be there. lol its getting harder though becuase shes at the stage where she plays with her ears and touch’s what hurts. So im on the edge bout it now. I think it would look cute though, just not both ears lol

Answer #30

That’s just pathetic really isn’t it! I’m not doing it becuase other people may think its cute, I personally do, he is getting it done Monday anyway, I only really posted this question to see if anyone had had bad experiences of it infecting etc. Thanks anyway but he will be having it done monday despite how anyone chooses to disagree!!

Answer #31

thanks colethky did you just use the solution that was given to you? Yeah my nephew had his done when he was 3months, hes almost 2 now and doesnt pull it or anything he just leaves it becuase it always has been there so its normal to him.

Answer #32

I think you should wait until he is old enough to make his own decissions because if you get it done now and when he is older and if he wants it done then,then he can go and get it done.

Answer #33

I think someone should call social services on you

Answer #34

I think it would look cute too! as long is its not a huge like gangsta looking dimond it should/WILL be the cutest thing ever!

Answer #35

You’re going to stick a needle through a baby’s ear because you think it’ll be cute? Are you out of your mind?

Answer #36

NOOO!!! that is horrible it will be traumatic for him cause it hurts!!! dont do it!!!

Answer #37

As for the infection part, I’ve known a lot of babies that have had their ears pierced when they were about 2 months and as long as you take care of it, it shouldn’t get infected. My daughter had hers done when she was three and I wish I would of gotten it done earlier because she picked and pulled at them a lot. Normally infants don’t do that.

Answer #38

I think that would be adorable.I have a almost 3 year old little boy whose ears I got pierced when he was 1 1/2.And I also have a 2 month old little boy who I’m thinking about getting his ears pierced as well.

Answer #39

Should that not be a personal choice and since he’s two months old I don’t think he can make that call

Answer #40

Nah nothing chavvy about a 2 month old baby with a peirced ear, being pushed around in his buggy by his 16 year old mum… It might sound harsh, but it’s how most people will see it.
