Last week I noticed that my DD had a breast bud under her left nipple. It could of been there longer and that I only just noticed, it's not something I regularly check. After looking around online it seemed that it some cases it was no problem, sometimes it was related to the milk they were drinking and other times related to a hormonal imbalance.
I decided to take her to the peadiatrician because I thought it was weird that she only had it on one side. She gave DD a full exam and asked when I started menstruating (13yrs). She said to bring DD back on Wednesday for an ultrasound of her adrenal glands and ovaries just to check that everything was ok. She said in most cases it's not a problem. Then she weighed and measured her and started asking me how tall myself and DH are, I'm 5 foot 7, DH is about 2 inches taller than that. She said that DD was at the top limit on the growth chart. She's 31.49 inches. She has always been at the top of the charts for height and weight but the health visitor said as long as she stayed more or less on her own curve it wasn't a problem, she's still just within the curve.
Now of course my mind is in overdrive that she has a hormone problem which is why she's so big, I'm freaking out big time!
note: the doc said it is a myth that breast buds can me related to cow/soy milk...
