What's klaxon?

My DD's getting her ears pierced in August. I think she'll look lovely in them. smile

But if you don't like seeing a baby with pierced ears, hide your friend's feed. Problem solved.

This threads probably going to get nasty quite quickly they do- but i agree with you OP

Does your pal have a ginormous tv?
Or a goat?

How about piercing just one of your baby's ears Princess? Then you can swivel her around according to the baby-ear-perforation-preference of whoever you're talking to at the time? wink

Everyone should do it. In fact that should do it at the hospital as a matter of course.

Klaxon Tealady

Thanks fide. I knew what a klaxon is I just don't know why it was posted here (probably missing something I usually do!)

Yanbu op to think that it looks horrible, and is cruel and unnecessary (which I happen to agree with), as after all, you are only stating your opinion, which you are perfectly entitled to have and express.

HOWEVER, prepare to be insulted, told to fuck off and mind your own, accused of prejudice and probably flamed. These threads have a habit of going that way.

Ooh, now there's an idea. Then when I bought her earrings I'd always have a spare. grin

Princess what made you decide to do it and why aug. Just don't get it but insight would be good if you'll share.

Yip it cruel

They only look horrible for the first few weeks, until you can put the gold hoops in. Then they look lovely.

ThedementedPenguin Wed 25-Jun-14 05:40:12

YABU. Stop judging it's only a bloody ear ring.

MoreBoober Wed 25-Jun-14 05:40:19

It's !

Tealady1983 Wed 25-Jun-14 05:44:37

No judgement of that's what you choose to do then crack on. I am interested in why you would do it though, how does it benefit the baby?

Fideliney Wed 25-Jun-14 05:45:11

I think it just meant the subject matter will attract a crowd OP

Buy your high brow pal a pair of Pat Butcher's cast offs.
Call it a christening gift for the lucky ickle pwincess.

In August because she'll be about 4 months, she'll be bigger in case she needs tylonal after, and have two rounds of immunizations.

I could go into all the multitude of reasons, but basically it boils down to I choose to. Also, as an adult I can take care of her ears properly without worrying about her playing with them while they heal. If she doesn't like it when she's older, she can always just not wear earrings.

But she'll have numbing cream and all that so it doesn't hurt. wink

I'm getting my three week olds nose pierced, just to be a little bit different.

Can't decide between a stud or a ring - WDYT?

Tealady1983 Wed 25-Jun-14 05:58:13

Love it bunster grin
thanks princess for sharing/explaining. I guess the you taking care if them bit makes sense. Pat butchers in the post wink

Tealady1983 Wed 25-Jun-14 05:58:59

A ring opies definitely a ring! wink

I just don't really get WHY people feel the need to do this. It is an individual's choice surely...something the child can decide when their older.
