I know some hispanics do it really early, but most ear piecing places won't let you do it before the baby is at least 3 months.

14k gold is recommended to prevent infections. You can also have your pediatrician do it for you. Anesthesia is not used because that hurts more than the actual piercing. Also check with the doctor about her recommendation for vaccines before this takes place.

I guess you can do it anytime, but I agree about the teenager thing (if he wants it).
