I'm sure this is not how you really think!
Actually it is. I personally don't find the whole princess culture thing very healthy. I completely get that most people think dressing up little girls is fun and harmless so I don't judge people that do but I prefer not to go overboard with it at least.

We'd let our daughter decided when it's time for her to get her ears pierced.

Out of curiosity, at Claires, how do they do it, needle or gun? In general, how old is the person doing it? And how much is it?

Also, I know it’s for a baby, but i do know a people that had their ears done when they were babies but then their ears grew differently and it looks odd.

Not saying this stuff will happen, just higher risks.
Mine were pierced around 6 months and the holes are completely crooked. I imagine they were straight when pierced and while my earlobes are symmetrical now, one hole is higher than the other. That coupled with the risks of infection, ripped earlobes and choking, I just don't see how it's worth it just for your girl to look "pretty" or to not get confused for a boy (oh, the horror). A niece had hers done to her as a baby and kept pulling them out until her mom gave up, so it was just a waste of money, time and pain. She wanted them repierced when she was 5 and it was a much simpler process - she even cleaned them herself everyday.

THIS. Piercing is painful. I don't understand why people would want to inflict unnecessary pain and body mutilation on a baby. For the sake of what? So the baby looks more "like a girl?" .... because it's "pretty" for a girl to have her ears pierced? It's a little sick, in my opinion. Almost as bad as circumcision... but that's a whole other topic that I won't get into now........

Um, no. There is scientific proof that vaccinations help save lives. There is no logic behind piercing ears, or circumcision, for that matter....
