So, my 5 y/o unvaxxed dd got her ears pierced yesterday. And naturally, I spent ALL NIGHT on the internet researching my decision, pulling it apart, freaking myself out about possible tetanus . . . . sigh. Of course, my eldest unvaxxed daughter has had her ears pierced since she was 4, but at the time, for whatever reason, tetanus was not in my mind . . . I think I seriously always just look for reasons to stress myself out!
So, we've been doing salt water washes today . . getting your kid's ear into a glass of water for 5 minutes at a time is in and of itself a feat! . . and I just bought some Dr. Brommer's castile soap to wash her ears once a day . . . . I've told her a MILLION times today not to touch her ears . . . and just praying for this 2 months of recovery to fly by!
Any sage advice for this neurotic mama? ;)
