  1. Hello and thank you for posting us.I will suggest that you wait for ear piercing till she is at least 6-12 months of age.Any time you puncture the skin there is chance of infection.Infants still have developing immune system.Regarding the method of piercing you can try any of the two.Both will take almost same time to heal and some amount of pain will be there in both.Ask if a dermatologist or a Paediatrician does piercing since they will use sterile equipment and follow basic safety procedure.If that's not possible then make sure that the person who's piercing the ears has washed her hands or used antibacterial hand gel,cleaned daughter's ear lobes with alcohol pad.After piercing keep the ears clean and do not change them for at least 6 weeks.I hope it helps.Write back with more queries. Good day and take care!
