Is it a Birth Right for a Baby Girl to have her ears pierced?

Check out my new earrings!! - Will I want these when I get older? Hmmm...

I always thought about if I ever had a little baby girl I would have her ears pierced. I just thought about it as something that we do when we have baby girls. Just part of being a girl. My daughters father feels we should wait until she is a teenager and it can be a special occasion for something she has done well. I guess I have gotten used to the idea but would like to know what you other moms and dads think about that. Should you pierce a baby girls ears when she is a few weeks old or wait till she is of age to make that decision for herself?

Well with peirced ears you can always let them grow in if she decides that she doesn't want them anymore, it's not like you're giving her a tatoo lol. I don't think there's anything wrong with it, my sister had her little girls ears peirced before they were 1.
