Of all the various types of baby jewellery, baby earrings are worn with the least amount of fuss by the baby. They sit on their ears, unfelt and unseen, impressing only friends and family!
It is important that earrings be lead and nickel free to ensure against allergic reactions to which some babies are prone.
Earrings have always been a popular adornment for babies and children. These days the tradition is being revived and it's becoming increasingly accepted for babies to have their ears pierced at quite a young age.
Tiny studs, often in the shape of teddy bears, animals, flowers or insects are very popular. For religious reasons, some choose a silver or gold cross.
Choose earings without sharp edges and a firmly held backing plate, also rounded for safety.
As children grow, they will enjoy looking at their baby photos showing the tiny earrings they wore at the time.
