Was in Claire's Accessories yesterday with my 4yo daughter, and there was a Mum getting baby's ear's pierced. Bab must have been about six months, and was screaming her head off, made me feel sick. Cannot for the life of me understand why people put their children through that at that age. It's so cruel. And mother was laughing with friends about it! Have got DS second lot of imms this week and dreading it, pathetic,over emitional,hormone befuddled woman I am, and just think its so wrong to put a baby through that pain uneccessarily.
Sorry for the rant but I so wanted to give her a slap.

Yes i do think there are certain MNers who disagree cos they feel like and it's dull as, they should get a less creepy hobby. To be honest you were not included in my admittedly sweeping statement as I got bored of reading the same rubbish before you posted ghanagirl

Inflicting pain on your child for no good reason, I think, is wrong. If my baby boy hurts himself by bumping his head it upsets me, so deliberately inflicting unnecessary pain on him to the point of needing to hold his hysterical little body to the chair makes me feel sick.

But if others are ok with it then it's their perogative. It takes all sorts.

YANBU I too think its disgusting to cause totally unnecessary harm to a child.. How would the mother feel if she was held tightly and forcibly had holes put in her body? I finally allowed my 10 yr old to have her ears done, she decided it was too painful even after the piercing and took the studs out.. Poor baby can't do that! Makes me sick people on here saying none of your business, if I saw a baby being hurt I would say something regardless of the mouthful I might receive in return! Some people...
