I am a mother of a 4-month old baby girl. She is very adorable and charming. She smiles a lot like a doll. However, when I bring her out for a walk, people would see her as a boy. I'll say 3 out of 10 people thinks that she is a boy. My mum suggested to have my baby's ear pierced. Now I would like to know the appropriate age for babies to have their ears pierced. I am a little bit concerned that it might cause my baby some pain and it could be uncomfortable for her since her head is still lying on her sides during her sleep.
