What we do to our infants has long been debated. Some parents choose to pierce the ears of their newborn girls or make cosmetic decisions that can’t be reversed. The rights of the infants sometimes unfortunately fall into the hands of their parents. This case is shocking.
This concerned dad took to the internet to ask a simple question…but the question SHOCKED hundreds of people who read it!
He found himself in a horrible predicament: he had twin sons. They were identical in every way. They were also premature, and one was born with serious health issues that required a steady dose of very strong medication. Is his solution acceptable? Or is he crossing the line? Read his story and ask yourself if it’s worth it to put a tattoo…on an INFANT!
My wife and I have two very premature twin boys. There is no difference between them apart from Aaron having very serious health issues, requiring him to have medication every 4 hours. If he doesn’t have his medication it leads to significant consequences. The boys are 12 months old and are completely identical. Even me and my wife can’t tell them apart and have been drawing on Adams arm every day with permanent marker (Aaron has very sensitive skin and we don’t want to irritate it). This backfired when the twins were at grandmas and after a bath rubbed off the texta, grandma accidently gave Aaron’s medication to Adam. Adam ended up very sick and Aaron in hospital for a week. This is a serious extreme situation and I don’t want to take this risk again. We have had other mix ups with the boys but it has never wound up this bad.
We have tried other things but nothing else worked as well as the texta (a felt-tipped pen) for numerous reasons-nail polish, bracelet, anklets, specific color clothes for each boy, shaving ones head and having the others long..
We are after a more permanant solution. I read online about someone tattooing a single dot on one of their twins and also about piercing ears. I really hate to say it but we are here. I need to do something permanant. I could have lost both my sons last weekend and I’m desperate. I am only after permanent solutions. Believe me when I say we have tried everything else before and it didn’t work. Please help me. I don’t want to lose my boy.
After reading his problem, do you agree? Is it alright to have someone tattoo a small mark to identify who was who? Is it justifiable in this case of life or death? Many are outraged…and many think he should do it before this happens again! Is it worth it, or not?
