Post Piercing Tips

Don’t think that your job is done after posting your baby’s swaggy pictures on Facebook and Instagram. You need to take care of certain things which might affect your baby’s health. Here are some tips that will help you:

Cleanliness is a must

At least twice a day, make sure that you gently rotate the earrings and clean the front and back of her ear lobes with rubbing alcohol, an antiseptic product, or an antibiotic ointment. Keep an alarm if you tend to have a weak memory.

Watch out for allergic reactions

It’s very important to monitor your baby for any kind of allergic reactions caused due to the metals of the Earrings. Generally, 24- Carat Gold earrings are recommended as it is less likely to cause allergic reactions but if you are stringent then surgical steel earrings are the best option for you.

Don’t use Dangling earrings

Dangling Earrings might cause your baby to tug on them or even pull them out. If the earrings are pulled out and get into the baby’s mouth, they can cause a serious choking hazard. Simple studs look more elegant and classy.

Keep an eye out for infection

Signs of infection can include: pain, discharge, inflammation and bleeding if you encounter any of these signs it is recommended to take the earring off, clean it with alcohol and ask your baby’s doctor if you should apply any medication.

Try not to cause pain while cleaning

Firstly, do not remove the earrings before six weeks. Wipe some alcohol around the ear lobes and remember to twist the earrings at least once a day. Don’t press on your baby’s ear when doing so, as that can be painful. You surely don’t want to make your baby cry, do you?

Finally you can now sleep in peace and dream of ways to show off your baby’s style. That’s a relief, isn’t it?
