The best earrings for your baby
Once you have decided, it is necessary to take into account a series of tips that, if you are thinking of buying some earrings for your newborn, are of paramount importance:
- Although many times we are tempted to choose for reasons or children’s drawings with which we imagine that our baby will be ideal, the first thing we should look for is that, above all, the earrings are safe and adapted for a newborn.For this reason, we must opt for models of slopes for baby that do not have hanging elements, as these can be a danger of tearing (by hooking the baby’s own clothes or even the person holding him in his arms).And do not worry about the design, there are many beautiful and super original children’s models that are also designed to meet all safety guarantees, which is the most important thing after all.
- Another aspect that we must take into account is the type of coupling, especially the rear screw of the slope.To find the ideal model, we must try to make it a flat or blunt screw that avoids the risk of the little one rubbing or locking the skin on the neck or face while alone or asleep.
- In addition, to avoid allergies, the material should be hypoallergenic.Choose always that you can earrings of gold of 18 carats or, in default, of silver, since these materials diminish in a high percentage the risk of undergoing allergic reactions.
- Finally, another important detail that we must consider is the size of the earring and the thickness of the filament that is introduced inside the ear.Before buying any newborn earrings we must take into account their morphology and try to choose a piece according to their size and age.
Once the slopes have been laid, essential care
- Avoid any infection by keeping your little girl’s earrings always clean.You can ask your pediatrician for advice on the safest and most suitable measures when cleaning your baby’s ear.
- Keep the shape of the hole by gently rotating the earrings, and sliding them back and forth, a couple of times a day.Also, always make sure the slope is not too tight.Consult your pediatrician or pediatric nurse when it is time to remove the earrings after the piercing (because if you go too far, the hole could be closed).
- Finally, constantly check the area around the slope.Do not forget that a baby is constantly touching itself and if the area has recently been punctured it can run the risk of becoming infected.
