My husband wanted our daughters ears pierced as early as possible, I wanted her ears pierced too but I was nervous about the judgement and comments I might receive. We waited until she was 11 months, this was a good age because she wasn’t wanting to touch them and I was able to clean and care for them in those first few weeks. If she doesn’t want them pierced as she gets older then she can remove the earrings, it’s not a big issue IMO. My niece wanted her ears pierced and twice she ran out crying and was too scared to go through with it, my sister wishes she did her daughters ears while she was a baby so she didn’t have to go through the anguish of wanting them done but being too scared of the pain.
