The Safest Piercing Method for Babies

Many new parents express interest in piercing their child’s ears. That being said, Medical piercing is a safe and sanitary way to pierce your child’s ears. Not to mention, accessorize your baby with a little bling.

Medical Piercings vs Normal Piercings

Medical piercings are preferred to normal piercings as they are done by a medical professional in a sterilized environment. Therefore, your baby’s ears are pierced in a medical grade environment, not in a store that is not held to same standard of cleanliness as a doctor’s office.

Taking your baby to a store or mall shop to get their ear’s pierced is doubly unsafe as the workers there do not have the same experience as trained doctor and receive little supervision. Additionally, often piercing guns are used instead of needles, and piercing guns can’t be sterilized.

Most professionals recommend such an environment for piercings, especially when it comes to babies, who are more delicate and prone to infection than adults.
