My daughter, 8 1/2, has red, sore nipples. Is this breast buds forming? I read somewhere that this means that she will get breasts in 3 years. Or could it be something else? Doesn't appear to be clothing or detergent related.

I remember getting red sore nipples as a kid when it was cold out. Perky nipples rubbing on a cold shirt all day kinda thing.

I second the lotion idea. Lansanoh is not just for nursing mothers! Sooths and protects like a charm.

My dd got breastbuds (as in her chest wasn't completely flat anymore) right before she turned 8. She is now 8 & 4 months and just this last week she said a couple of time "my chest hurts just right here" and when she lifted her shirt up, sure enough, it was her left nipple/areola. I remember a similar tenderness off and on when developing (about the same age too).
I haven't read that it equals breasts in 3 years, but I haven't done a lot of reading about it yet either.
I've been thinking she's been acting kinda "hormonal" lately, and it looks like I was right on the mark. It's kind of shocking to me, she still seems so young and little.

Ugh I don't know what it means, but I had sore nipples and tender breast buds for YEARS and YEARS. It really sucked! And, I never really got boobs - am still an AA!

What helped: moisturizing, and wearing a tight-fitting camisole or training bra to minimize chafing. Also going to great lengths to avoid anything hitting me in the chest.
