DD1 is 4 and gets a distinct whiff about the armpits by the end of the day, especially if she's been running about etc. I think it's probably normal, and made worse by her refusing to do more than a few wees a day and forgetting to drink, but DH is quite worried by it and says it's not normal for a young child to smell like that. Anyone know any more about it? DH googled and found stuff about having organic dairy but that sounds like a bunch of whatnot to me.

My DS is five and needs a nightly wash under his arms, they do get a bit stinky whiffy.

I was surprised too but there you are!
