I think we've decided to wait until she asks for them and is responsible to take care of cleaning them herself. I think they look adorable on little babies, though!

When she is old enough to ask for them and be responsible for them, Ill take her somewhere reputable to get them done.

Not until she is old enough to know once you put the hole there it's there forever and not something she can just decide she doesn't want to take care of them.

When she's old enough to ask. I'm all about letting my kiddos choose what they want done to their body. I think piercings will be pretty much off-limits beyond ears at teen years unless she waits an entire year and thinks about it. She can do whatever she wants to her hair to compensate.

Ditto what a lot of the others said - when she's decides she wants them and when I know she'll be responsible enough to take care of them.

Figure well talk about it once she's here.

this LO is a boy so it doesnt really apply to me....however I have 2 older girls. With my first daughter i waited until she wanted it and since she was older it was harder to care for because she kept messing with it/touching them and they actually came out....and when they come out early there is no way you are getting them back in without another piercing. She has had her ears pierced 3 times and now she is 16 and very seldom wears earrings. I think because its always been such a pain or bother she really lost interest.
Now my younger daughter, I got hers done at about 6-8 months and it was great. she didnt mess or grab at them and they stayed in and she loves wearing and getting different earrings.
If this LO was a girl, I would do it again early where I can take care of them without her messing with them.

I'm getting Aubree's done as soon as she's old enough. I don't know how old they have tto be to get them done, so I'm going to ask around & take her when she's old enough. I think getting them done that young is better, just because if I'm taking care of them, I know they'll be taken care of right, she most likely wont mess with them, or get curious & take them out too early. Plus, she wont fuss as much & she wont remember it. I had mine done when I was a baby. My MIL took Mike's sister when she was like 6 & she said that it took an hour & a half JUST to draw the dots on her ears, then, when they pierced the first ear, she freaked & wouldn't let them pierce the other lol. I don't want that to happen.

As soon as she's old enough to take care of them herself. My niece got hers done last year (she was 5) and she is constantly messing with them, losing her earrings, and won't ever leave them alone.
I haven't talked to DH, but I don't think he'll have a different opinion.

Well my main thought is I will wait until she wants them and do it as a reward type day thing. My other thought though is, for example, my little cousin looked very very boyish for the first year or two. Very little hair and very boylike. My cousin pierced her ears and BAM she looked like a girl hehe. So I would say that there is a chance I might change my mind.

I got mine pierced when I was 7 and I remember it being a fun day out with my mom and aunt and some girl cousins. I managed to take care of them at least well enough that they never got infected or grew back in. I also never got any more piercings and rarely wear earrings, so it's not a big deal to me.

We'll definitely be waiting until she wants them and is old enough to understand how to take care of them.
