Meanwhile, for Crystal said her daughter now five, doesn't ever remember getting her ear pierced.She also wants to spread awareness of piercing children's ears at such a young age.
She stated: 'We chose to pierce our daughter's ears at a young age because it is proven that most who wait until they are older, around the age of 5-10 years of age, usually end up with an infection because they don't stop touching them,' she said.
'When you pierce them young they don't feel, but maybe 30 seconds of pain, if any pain at all and we as parents take care of the piercing and they are less likely to mess with them.'
'Emily, who was four months old at the time, does not remember the piercing at all - and she loves her earrings.
'If at anytime she wants to take them out - then she can.'
