Should I use numbing cream for my infant?
Numbing cream is an option, however, almost all babies will cry for a minute or so after the piercing is completed. It is often compared to the reaction of getting a vaccination. Babies must weigh at least 11 lbs to use the numbing cream.
Because of Covid-19 and the recommendation to limit time indoors, numbing cream is no longer applied at the appointment. Clients, can however, purchase numbing cream over the counter and apply to the lobes 30 minutes prior to the appointment.
