We waited until 8 years old with our eldest.
It was a nightmare. Frequent infections, screaming, closing up, redoing, and so on.
She just refused to look after them.
We refused to redo them a third time (age 9) and made her wait until 11. Same thing again. Revolving door of refusal to clean or look after them.
She’s nearly 14 now and everytime she wears earrings, her ears are sore for weeks. It’s not an allergy thing, she’s just lazy.
We did our youngest’s at 8 months. Zero issues. She’s nearly 4 and loves them. She asks to clean them regularly and loves he special set her grandparents bought her before she was even conceived lol
