Once we have a Daughter, one of Our Major Concern is to get her Ears Pierced. We got Baby K’s ears pierced when she was 2.5 months old #bestdecision. Since then everytime I cross a neighbour or relative, their first question to me is , You already got her Ears Pierced ?? Wow !! How??When??Where??


Sharing Some Tips that made this Process easy for us:

๐Ÿ”ถ If you are not bounded with some fixed date or any ritual, ย get your baby’s ear pierced in the 3rd Month or as early as possible, Reason being :
๐ŸŒŸtheir skin is really soft
๐ŸŒŸthey cant pull their ears by then..
๐ŸŒŸthe intensity of pain felt by them is low..
๐Ÿ”ถ You can choose to go to a Jeweller or a Doctor, just make sure they are experienced and use sterlized instruments..

๐Ÿ”ถย Try to pick an earring which can be sealed from behind with instrument instead of the screw one, to avoid misplacing it.
๐Ÿ”ถ When they mark points on ears, be very careful that it is in centre, becuase once pierced there is no going back..

๐Ÿ”ถ Once the piercing in done, immediately start feeding the baby to soothe him down..

๐Ÿ”ถ Get the piercing done in the morning, so if you get any problem you can visit the Doctor on the same day ..

๐Ÿ”ถ Make sure to apply cocunut oil 5-6 times a day on her ears and rotate the earrings (to check if its not jammed) .. Continue this for atleast 12-15 days..

๐Ÿ”ถ If the earrings are stuck or the ears are getting swollen, consult a Doctor immediately..
๐Ÿ”ถ If the Baby is having pain on the day of piercing(like crying a lot or feeling uncomfortable), ask your doctor about giving some paracetamol to ease the pain..


Getting Ear pierced is No rocket science and We Mothers feel more pain then our super strong babies.. Thats what our Jeweller said to me When i asked him that will it be very painful ?? ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ
I hope these tips can guide you through !

    Agreed. Its no rocket science. I have a son so probably don’t have to worry about piercing till he’s at least 16 and he threatens us with this whole rebellion teenager phase. ๐Ÿ˜‰
