My dd will be 5 in September. Over the past few days I have noticed that her breast tissue is looking more pronounced. Not the nipple though. There is a definite line down the middle of her chest defining each breast. Does this warrant an immediate trip to my pediatrician?

if it's a line down the middle, that could just be fat?  But if there is actual breast tissue, that should be evaluated. Your pediatrician could do that.
