Ear Piercing for Toddlers and Infants
Babs is our sole ear piercer. As a consequence, she is unable to simultaneously pierce both ears on your toddler or infant.
Some infants and toddlers are a breeze to pierce...after they are given a few minutes to "catch their breath" after the first ear, they will allow Babs to approach them, and complete the second ear. A few more tears, and all is well.
But, most toddlers and infants are, in fact, far more traumatized by the piercing of the first ear. And Babs has seen siblings have vastly different responses, so this is pretty unpredictable.
Sometimes, the only way Babs can pierce the second ear on a distraught wee one is if a trusted caregiver literally holds down / restrains the child. Please be sure to bring an additional caregiver with you in case this is how your child's piercing experience transpires.
Babs will be focused on piercing your baby's ears, and cannot assist in the endeavor of holding your child still.
If you are unable to bring an extra "trusted human" with you, please know that Babs might request to pierce the second ear on another day. There is no extra charge for this, but obviously it's not ideal, either.
Thanks so much for your understanding and cooperation.
