The Academy of Pediatrics warned about the risks of this practice so common in girls wearing hoops. The details, in this note.
One of the most common customs about a newborn girl is the placement of hoops, piercing her ears. However, the Academy of Pediatrics warned of the dangers of this practice. On the one hand, some accept and others do not. Some assume that when they grow up, they will want them to be stuck. But when they are babies, they do not remember the pain it generates. Other parents decide to do it early. As for the others, they simply do it for something cultural.
However, there are news. From the American Academy of Pediatrics I recommend waiting to pierce the girl's ears. The reason? avoid the risks involved in the piece of metal in a newborn. They can get stuck in their clothes, and putting them in their mouths can cause health problems. Some parents do not even wait a few days to put their hoops on, but they do it in a few hours, even before the baby is born. the tetanus vaccine, which usually occurs at two months of age. This vaccine is also given at age 6 and 15, and doctors recommend drilling after 3 rounds.
Another precaution that is reported is that the rings are made of gold, and that the equipment needed for the piercing is not only correct but is properly sterilized. At worst, this can cause your daughter to have an infection and increase the chances of getting hepatitis.
Another complication are allergic reactions, which can cause an infection in the earlobe by the metal that was used to do the drilling.
