A WOMAN has told how she was mum-shamed for taking her baby daughter to get her ears pierced.
Alyssa Doherty took to TikTok and posted a video of her baby daughter getting her ears pierced as she can be seen quietly sucking on her dummy.
Moments later as the gun pierces through the little girl's skin, she bursts into tears and her face appears to go red.
In the clip, Alyssa explains: "Back to when my daughter got her ears pierced.
"She cried for a few seconds.
Alyssa captioned the post: "I got mum shamed for this LOL."
