Today I was shocked to realise my ds's armits smelled of BO! He is very very thin, not very physical at all, and not developed in any way. Is this normal?

How often does he wash, does he dry properly and had he been running about.

DOn't be too alarmed - ( tho' I was when it happened to DS aged 8 . For ages I thought it was his polyester football tops that were the culprits!)
I think it's an early surge of hormones that then settle down. We took it as an opportunity for an up dated chat about washing. It's perfectly normal IMO

My DS is just the same. He is very clean (also skinny), but he STINKS some days, but only if it's been particularly hot or running round a lot.

I have got him some PitRok to get us through the (I hope short) smelly stage!

Ah thank you. I did find it shocking, my baby and all that you know. Feeling reassured now, thanks.
