    I don't really know how it is called but it's about the hole for the earrings. Is it necessary for a female baby to be pricked on the ear lobe for the placement of earrings? I remember a kind of earrings that they call stud which is used to create the hole. They say it is painless although the baby still cries.

    I say, "Leave the kids alone!". I mean, what's next - give them tattoos? This is beyond ridiculous and is actually abuse I think. Anyway, another form of abuse I think - is giving them weird or unpopular names. I mean, the kid has to live with this name!

    It's a controversial topic for sure. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends waiting until the children are old enough to decide for themselves. We've published an article on our blog about this topic if you want to learn more:
