Babies cannot consent to having body modification done on them - a baby is not a fashion accessory, and it is not ethical to change a babies appearance with body modification just for your own vanity. Furthermore punching a hole through a babies skin has risks such as infection, and a baby is likely to pull out the piercing or catch the piercing so damage the skin.
