The question of piercing the ears of our daughter somehow did not stand with us – I suggested, the husband supported, and 20 days before the first birthday we conducted this procedure.
Many argue their position When the daughter grows up, she will decide whether to pierce or not. Personally, I have not seen a single girl who did not want to wear earrings.
The daughter of my girlfriend, who is 6 years old, really wants to pierce her ears, but they already 4 times reached the salon, and the girl changed her mind because of the fear of pain.
I like little girls with earrings, although some consider it a gypsy. By the way, in some countries – Germany, Holland, girls, if desired, parents pierce ears right in the hospital.
Now the procedure for puncturing the earlobes is done in almost every beauty salon with a special pistol. However, it should be remembered that this is a fairly important undertaking – firstly, it can be pierced asymmetrically, and secondly, it should be done in accordance with the location of the active points on the lobe.
My manicurist studied this procedure abroad (by the way, she pierced the ears of babies in maternity hospitals several times), plus she has a medical degree and she is an ardent disinfection fan that appeals to me very much.
So, on May 1, 2010, instead of a demonstration, my daughter and I went to the salon. The master outlined a puncture point with a felt-tip pen and quickly and clearly made punctures. Daughter did not even have time to get scared.
By the way, the timing of the years was not accidental – because if you pierce ears in the cold season, hats can cause pain.
Some cautioned – the daughter will be pulled by the ears in the kindergarten and damage the ears. Or told cases how careless disposal of clothes or combing caused the child anguish due to the presence of earrings. None of this, neither we nor the daughters of my friends had.
Followers of alternative medicine claim that there are points on the ear lobe, which are responsible for the functioning of almost all organs and systems and a puncture may provoke a malfunction in their work.
Honestly, I do not believe it. But the fact that the master knows where to prick was not a superfluous factor.
Earrings in the form of studs from a special hypoallergenic material are inserted into the gun. Their disadvantage is that the fastener without thread and often flew off – you had to quickly buy new ones, well, that they are inexpensive – about 80p. for a couple.
Then the grandmother presented her daughter with gold earrings with a clasp English castle of a small child size. But the castle in them was not very reliable, and after the daughter lost one earring, we decided to purchase others (even though that earring was found later).
For 2 years, her daughter has been wearing golden studs, in which the clasp is clearly fixed to the thread. Since the moment of puncture, the daughter’s ears have never become inflamed. On the recommendation of the master, during the week I washed them with tincture of calendula or peroxide.
The daughter of a friend has another model of earrings – in the form of a long chain, which ends in a ball, without a clasp. The girl goes to kindergarten and wears hats – earrings are not lost and do not cause inconvenience.
Of course, you decide – to pierce or leave the right of choice for the child. However, now some do not baptize children, so as not to impose a certain faith on the baby.
I like the look of a girl with earrings, an extra bonus – a short-haired baby will not be called a boy. And I have never regretted that I pierced my ears with my daughter.
How do you feel about ear piercing?
