North West on 'Ellen'

How young is too young to pierce a baby’s ears, and be honest, do you really care?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have recently decided their 1-year-old daughter, North West, is old enough to for a pretty puncture. Images of North rocking what appears to be diamond studs have hit the web and just like all celebrity children, their fashion and their caregivers parenting skills are up for debate.

The opposers are making their opinions heard loud and clear: “Kim Kardashian has pierced her one-year-old’s ears? That’s cruel AND tacky,” wrote a Twitter user.

The dispute over the right time to pierce a child’s ear has always been a touchy subject, but due to the risk of the chocking on the earring, the American Academy of Pediatrics advocate that parents wait until a child is old enough to take care of their own piercing.

Let’s see if our cries pierce the ears of North’s parents. Lol! Get it?
