My 6 year old has pubic hair! Not loads....6 or 8 maybe? She asked me why she has a hairy (front) bum!

I've spoken to some other parents, some with girls a couple of years older who don't yet have pubic hair. Should I be concerned for any reason?

Someone mentioned early puberty to me & taking her to the doctors but I don't want her to think there is anything wrong & worry!

It can just be a normal variation, but as it's not very common in such a young child I would have it looked it; it would be useful to rule out precocious puberty.
