There are lot of different opinions about when ear piercing should be done for the babies.
I had decided not to get out done before 3 months of age. Also I was little scared about the whole process and pain involved, I tried pushing it late. Since her grandmom kept pushing to get it done at early age.
So finally after lot of insistence at approximately 4.5 months, I took up the courage to pierce her ears.
My mother inlaw called same lady which she had called previously for other grandchildren. And she promised me that she will handle the while process as I was sceptical and uneasy about seeing my child cry.
when the lady started the preparation, my mother in law declared she could not see the baby crying. That made me, feel all the more scared. Finally I held my baby tight and the lady pulled one gun shot in left ear.
As my baby had just woke up, she cried little loudly. So her grandmother got upset and took the baby away. She declared we don’t want any more piercing in another ear. We are ok with new fashion. 🙂
Soon father in law also started supporting her. And I got in tight situation, as I could not see such silly thing happening to my child.
All this happening when my husband was not happy with the whole idea of ear piercing at lot.
Finally I had to put my foot down. Since one ear was done, second had to be done. I knew that my child cried same during her vaccinations. I got next one done and consoled her. ,
Few moments later everyone was happy, baby looked calmed and Pretty.
It was indeed an eventful afternoon and something which we later laughed at.
That’s the love of parents and grandparents, that they cannot see their children in pain, whatever be the reason.
