I got gunshot done when she was an year old. Ideally earlier is better as they don't pull and tamper with it. Just applied some lotion on the ear after the piercing. Also used a stainless steel top for a month and then went for gold

Better you can go for gun shot in hospitals, its very safe n no infection n pain,  i did on 28th day for my baby. oly she was crying while piercing aftr tht no crying..

gunshot as it is less painful and hygienic and chances of infection is less...also the earlier the better since babies ear is tender the pain won b much..after care is jst apply coconut oil for 15 days to month
