Personally I won't consider it till my daughter is old enough to understand about it & look after them by herself. I'm not a big fan of them on babies either but I know in some countries & communities it's seen as the norm.

it seems as though your mind is made up going by the arguments back to the ladies who have gone to the time & effort of replying to you. It therefore seems unneccessary that you asked this question in the first place or that people bother to reply with their opinions when it appears you dont really want them
for what its worth i also agree with the ladies above in feeling very uneasy about the idea of doing this. also, certainly in any of the countries that i have lived in / have friends in, i know that no doctor would pierce a child's ears as it is not a necessary medical procedure.
at the end of the day the decision is yours to make & live with so the important thing is that you are happy and comfortable with it.

Kia, as an adult (especially if you've had a baby - or twins) it barely hurts to get your own ears pierced. If you want yours done then get them done but personally I wouldn't do it to a baby as you're permanently putting holes in your babies ears when they might not want them. Wait till they're old enough to understand & look after them.
Hope you gets yours done as I think this is where the problem lies.

Female genital mutilation is a cultural thing as well - doesn't make it right. No one "needs" to have their ears pierced or their clitoris and labia removed. 2 months or 6 months isn't going to make a difference. Why not stop being a wuss, get your own ears pierced and decide then?

When DD was born in Spain they pierced all newborn baby girls shortly after birth

You do not have to have you ears pierced to get married, It is called clip on earrings. Also, i'm pretty sure you didn't miss out on marriage cuz your ears weren't pierced. I didn't even wear earrings the day I got married, and my husband still loves me just the same. When you get married the guy is not looking at your ears, nor is he marrying you because your ears are pierced. I don't know how old you are, but you sound kinda young. Your babies need to make their own decision on whether or not to get their ears pierced. Tattoos are a part of some cultures too, but you don't see people actually tattooing babies. Let your children decide for themselves. Your ear wear it gets pierced is only cartilage if done by a professional, you will barely even feel it happen, so go get it done on yourself not your children.
