What is the best age to pierce my baby's ears?

For babies, the ideal age to pierce is between 2 and 8 months but we will do the piercings up to the age of 12 months in the office (and up to 15 months for a house call).  After that, we recommend piercing at around the age of 5 when the child is able to sit still during the procedure, allowing us to perform safe and perfectly centered piercings.

 

For children ages 15 months- 4 years we do not recommend piercing and do not offer this in our office.
