Piercing Baby’s Ear – When Can and How?

Piercing baby’s ear by Queli

Pediatricians recommend that mothers only put earrings on their babies after the second or third month of life. They argue that the baby would be better protected against infections if she took at least the first doses of the vaccines . Another argument is the possibility of infecting the place, putting the newborn’s life at risk. Still others argue that because the ear is very small, the hole may go wrong. The allegations make perfect sense, especially if we consider that many children have a pierced ear at home, by a relative or friend. Pharmacies are authorized by ANVISA to do this procedure using sterile earrings, with the aid of appropriate equipment, similar to a pistol.

As the mother of two princesses, I chose the pharmacy to drill the holes in their ears. In addition to the pistol appearing to be less aggressive than piercing with the hand, the sterile earring used in pharmacies rarely ignites the child’s little ear. Even my youngest only wears a “pharmacy earring”, as the others, even gold, cause allergies. Both had their ears pierced in the second week of life. I used 70% alcohol to keep the place clean and dried carefully. None of them ignited. In case of inflammation, bleeding or redness, the ideal is to remove the earring immediately and take it to the pediatrician, who should advise on medication and appropriate care.

Well, I had two experiences too, one of them was traumatic! Rs. Joana was 10 days old and at the maternity hospital they did not make a hole, I took it to the pharmacy and the pharmacist punched it with a pistol. Her ears showed an allergic reaction to the hole even though the earring was made of surgical steel, but it was not the fault of the hole process, but of her own body. Joana has an allergy to gold earrings, the only ones she remains are those from the pharmacy, ironic, isn’t it? But piercing Melissa’s ear was much more peaceful, since it was in the hospital and with a nurse , she also had no allergies to the material.

Piercing the baby’s ear is very common and moms even include earrings in the girl’s layette. As Queli said, piercing the baby’s ear in a reliable place is the beginning of everything and after that care is necessary. Rotating the earring 3x a day and making movements back and forth can prevent the earring from sticking to the ear, and it is necessary to help with healing. If you have a problem as I said to Queli, take it to the pediatrician, sometimes an ointment can help .

There are several materials and models to choose from, avoid ring and pendant models, as beautiful as they may seem, they can hook on clothes and end up pulling, then it hurts the baby a lot . The ideal earring are balls or pets, preferably without a tip. There are professionals who go to the child’s home to make the hole, they are specialist nurses in ear holes, just look for one in your region. A gold earring for babies is costing an average of R $ 150.00. Choosing to pierce the baby’s ear is such an old habit that it is part of the culture, so if you really like it with pity, the sooner you do it better!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.

Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
