The Baby’s Mother Has Been Heavily Criticised For Piercing Her Daughter’s Ears At One Day Old In The Hospital

A new mum has come under fire for piercing her newborn daughter’s ears after just one day in the hospital, with many parents saying she should wait until the child is old enough to make the decision for herself.

The mother, who posts under her daughter’s name, Lara, on TikTok, shared an innocent video of her baby girl just hours after her birth compared to her now at three months old.

The adorable infant had a tiny flower earring visible in the footage from her first 24 hours on earth, and it generated a raucous to explode in the comments section.

But others supported the decision saying that it’s common in some cultures to pierce a young girl’s ears early in life.

One woman said that perhaps it was just her, but on the day her children were born, getting their ears pierced was very far down her list of concerns.

Another said that it was another level for them and that they just couldn’t understand. That it hurts the same as when they’re older.

A third added that a child should get the choice if they want their ears pierced or not and that she was going to let her babies decide when they understood those things.

While it’s not known where Lara and her mother live, it’s probably not Australia as she confirmed that it was the neonatologists within the hospital who pierced Lara’s ears.

Many Latina mums pierce their baby’s ears before even leaving the hospital when the baby is just days old. The biggest reason for this is probably just tradition, and all cultures have things that they do just because their parents did the same, and numerous hospitals because it is a tradition to pierce a newborn’s ears offer the service because it’s better to do this in a sterile and professional manner, rather than a kiosk at the mall.

It’s thought that when they are first born that the child doesn’t feel the pain like they would if they were a year or two, and the holes are given by neonatologists, doctors specialising in the care of newborns in the hospital at birth, and apparently babies ear lobes are softer when they’re really young and that in fact, the babies don’t even react.

Whether people approve or disagree, mothers make decisions for their children, but it doesn’t mean that the child is unloved or not cared for.

There are many parents who have their baby’s ears pierced at an extremely young age but it doesn’t mean that they’re not responsible adults, but to some people, they are extremely bad parents, but most of these parents who do have their baby’s ears pierced are extremely loving parents and the least judgemental of all.

It’s a tradition in some cultures and as far as I’m aware there’s never been a lawsuit against it, and instead of people fretting about a baby’s ears being pierced maybe we should worry more about alcoholic parents and impoverished children, which is far more concerning than getting your baby’s ears pierced.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
