Many parents of young children make the decision early to get their newborn baby’s ears pierced. For some, it’s a cultural decision that links their baby to a legacy of family tradition. For others, they just like the look, and figure it’s easier to do when their child is an infant. The American Academy of Pediatrics says there’s no ideal age to pierce a child’s ears. Ear piercing is safe if it’s done correctly with sterilized equipment.
Around the world, many hospitals are equipped with sterilized piercing needles and use hypoallergenic surgical steel tools to quickly and easily pierce ears before the baby goes home from the hospital. Unfortunately, the most significant complications come from poor aftercare or earrings that trigger an irritating allergic reaction. That’s why there is a big demand for a medical professional and hypoallergenic earrings for babies.
Why Choose Medical-Grade Earrings?
Nickel causes the most contact dermatitis reactions than any other metal in the world. Contact with cheaply made jewelry and body piercings is the reason why more women than men experience this allergic reaction. Choosing hypoallergenic earrings for babies is the right thing to do because it prevents this painful reaction from happening.
Babies who are allergic to nickel can react within hours after their initial exposure. The contact dermatitis rash caused by a nickel allergy can be itchy and extremely uncomfortable. For new parents, any additional source of stress will only add to their sleepless nights, so choosing hypoallergenic earrings for babies is the best option.
What Are the Ideal Medical-Grade Earrings for Babies?
Two materials frequently used to create hypoallergenic jewelry are medical-grade plastic and medical-grade titanium. These materials are lightweight and durable.
Medical-grade plastic earrings are an excellent choice for infants, as they’re affordable, lightweight, and ideal for sensitive skin. Blomdahl USA’s medical-grade plastic earrings come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Any of our medical plastic post earrings would make a safe and beautiful gift for a newborn.
