Some done earlier: There is no age limit on the earpiercing, but generally advisable to avoid such when baby is ill/sick, having fever, not eating/drinking etc.. Otherwise, go ahead and maker her more beatiful. Just make sure you follow the care-instruction carefully to avoid infection etc... Congrats on the new princess and good luck.
