WHILE parents are entitled to raise their children however they want, some mothers have been fired for getting their children’s ears pierced at a young age.
In a post that outraged TikTokers, many users felt it was “cruel” for a baby to have to do a trick at such a young age.
In a TikTok video, a mother is called ‘london.babygray_‘, she can be seen holding her newborn boy while he has his ears pierced.
The mother did not reveal how old her little one is, but he looks only a few months old.
The American mother said, “Watch my baby get his ears pierced.”
The woman looked quite worried while the procedure was going on and was shocked to hear the sound of the earring piercing through her skin.
Her son only cried for a few seconds but then calmed down.
However, the second ear did not go smoothly, and the piercer confirmed “that ear is always worse”.
When her baby cried, the woman comforted him and said, “I’m so proud. You look so cute.”
The woman seems pleased with her baby’s new product, but TikTok users aren’t so sure.
Her video has racked up a whopping 353.7 thousand views.
It has 19.9k likes, 1,344 comments and 422 shares.
Not everyone was on board with the baby’s ear piercing like this mother and many commented to express this.
One said: “Why pierce a boy. Madness.”
Another added: “No words but why would you do that to a newborn.”
A third commented: “This makes me so sad!!! Poor baby. His cry broke my heart.”

Another said: “Too young.”
One user commented: “Unnecessary pain for a child. Children can say this is their choice should have this only. Mothers and piercers should not do this. Poor baby.”
However, the mother didn’t seem to care and clapped her hands in response to the comments with: “You all realize I’m getting paid for all of your weird haunting comments. Let’s go guys!!!!!!!!! Keep me paying. ”
