The Academy of Pediatrics warns about the risks of this practice so common in girls to place a circle
One of the most common habits about a newborn girl is the placement of circles, piercing her ears. However, the Pediatric Academy warns of the dangers of this practice which has some that accept it, and others do not.
Some think that when they grow up, they will want them to be stabbed, but when they are babies they don't remember the pain they cause. Other parents decide to do it from an early age so there is no doubt about the sex of the baby. As for the others, they do it for something cultural.
However, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends waiting to penetrate the girl's ear to avoid the risks involved in metal cuts in newborns. They can get stuck in clothes, and putting it in your mouth can cause health problems.
Some parents don't even wait a few days to put up earrings, but they do so only a few hours before the baby gets a tetanus shot, which usually takes two months to live. The vaccine is also given at 6, and at 15, and the doctor recommends that the perforation be done after 3 rounds.
Other precautions reported were that the ring was made of gold, and that the equipment needed for perforation was not only correct, but was properly sterilized. In the worst case, this can cause your daughter to get an infection and increase the chances of getting hepatitis.
Another complication is an allergic reaction, which can cause infection in the earlobe by metals used to make perforations.
