      My almost 9-yr old has started to have some irritation in her breasts. I was a little worried because I thought she was too young. We did consult her doctor and she said that this is a totally normal time to start seeing changes in her development.

      I think this is normal for 8 years old. Do not worry.

      yes i agree

      I also agree this is normal. My oldest is now 12 but has started budding at around 8 years also. She started her cycle at almost 10 years old. She is quite developed for her age now.

      It is scary but I have heard it is because of ingredients that they put in some food now of days. I can’t remember what though. I had 34D breasts in 6th grade so my mom wasn’t happy either. She was afraid of the GI’s as we were stationed overseas then. I will see if I can find the article where they talked about ingredients in food that can cause this problem. I know you are worried. Hugs.

      It is life, best advice would be to educate her. And buy some sports bras.
      Explain to her that bras are now a part of her daily wardrobe just like underwear.

      My daughter started growing peach fuzz under her arms and had breast changes at about 8. Her periods started at about 9. I did not expect her to have her period that soon, since I did not start mine till I was 14. It may be genetics though, since a couple of my paternal Aunts started theirs at 9 years old as well. I would not worry, she will be fine. Mine is now a healthy 2020 Graduate on her way to college. Enjoy her now, they grow up so fast!

      It keeps getting younger & younger. While it’s common, you can’t say it’s “normal”. I too am wary of so much hormones in our foods/water.

      Yup totally normal. Kids are growing up faster than ever these days. 🙁

      PLease ask a pediatrician if you’re not sure. No matter what experiences we’ve had it won’t be the same for your kid. If you’re worried and someone says ‘yup totally normal’ it’s not okay to go by that. I’m a doctor myself and I’ll refrain from giving you random advice without seeing the kid as a patient. We are moms, not experts!
