Best Earrings for Babies & Toddlers

What are the Best Earrings for My Baby?

There are a few things to take into account when buying baby earrings or earrings for toddlers such as safety and comfort, not just cute motifs and patterns that one usually thinks about when they think of cute babies. There are many different styles of earrings as you may already know and own yourself, but which ones are the best earrings for toddlers and babies? Here, we’ve dedicated a lot of time to researching the safest styles of earrings for toddlers. Our personal favorite and safe style for active young ones? Safety screw back earrings.

What are Screw Back Earrings?

As their name implies, screw back earrings (also sometimes referred to as safety screw back earrings) are earrings whose post twist into a closed backing like a screw into a precut hole. To put these on your baby or toddler, simply slide the post through her ear piercing and line it up with the backing, then simply twist it on for a secure and comfortable fit. Since they do not endlessly screw on, you don’t have to worry about putting the screw back earring on too tightly, and with this type of fit you don’t have to worry about the backing becoming a potential hazard for your baby; these are earrings that toddlers can't take off by themselves.

Here at In Season Jewelry, we have a wide and adorable selection of baby screw back earrings available for any style and theme with our own unique threading that is exclusive to our designs. These are likely the safest earrings for toddlers, but there is another style that make good earrings for babies and toddlers. Let’s look at another safe style of earrings for babies we that love, safety studs.

What are Safety Stud Earrings?

Similar to our friends the screw backs, safety stud earrings are also good earrings for toddlers. With this style, you simply push a round and flat backing onto the earring post until you hear a “click,” and with that the earring is secure on your baby’s ear - almost identical to screw back styles. These are very safe earrings for toddlers who love to run around and be active, preventing the earring from falling out while they’re on the playground. This is a style you’re sure to love and look out for whenever you’re searching for children’s earrings on our site.

What are Butterfly Back Earrings?

This is the most common type of stud earring, and one that you’ll immediately recognize. This is the one where the backing loops back onto itself looking like a little butterfly hence the name butterfly back earrings. You likely own a few pairs yourself already that have this style of back. Butterfly back earrings for babies are widely used and considered perfectly safe even without the extra fastening methods employed by the other styles of baby earrings above. Simply slide the post through the opening of the backing until you feel her tender little lobe against it and you’re good to go. We recommend these type of earrings for older girls who won’t hurt themselves removing an earring.
