My dd is 10 in September. I am very surprised that she is getting body odor where she needs to wash throughly and use deodorant. Is this common and is it a first sign of puberty with the rest following in the next couple of years? I remember friends teasing me about my breast buds and how they showed through my t-shirt or moved when I ran when I was about 11 and I think I got my menarche right around 13. She is not overweight although she has a little more fleshiness than usual and I put that down to her body getting ready for a growth spurt. She has had a huge appetite recently but again I just assumed her body was telling her she needed more energy for growing. She is happy, healthy and active.
