Dd is as skinny as a rake, but had the same thing about a year ago. She has started developing breast buds - she is 11. She is very fit and healthy - has got very tall, but NO fat on her at all. I thought they had to have a certain amount of adipose tissue, but it would appear not. It is a bit sad - it seems too soon to me.
my dd is 8 and a half and has been complaining of her boobies hurting now and then,i was 11 when i got my periods. hope fully we have a few years to wait does height and weight have anything to do in when they start puberty?
I didn't start till I was 14 but I didn't weigh 7 stone till I was in my twenties. I think your build can be be a bit of a red herring, I was small but not an ounce of fat on me (wish I could say the same now)
I'm now just under average height and only chubby cos I'm a greedy pig. My bone structure is very slight and DD1 is the same. She's almost 8 but weighs less than 3 stone, recently I've noticed a bit of a discharge in her pants & thought OMG, she's way tooo young. Friends DD is developing a bit of a bust/greasy hair/skin and although she's 11 she weighs just over 4 stone.
I did think there was a bit of a correlation with when your mother started but that might be the menopause
My friend's daughter had this (similar age), and it turned out she had a slight infection, not her period. It is apparently very common in girls that age. Might be worth speaking to your GP, although obv it is not very nice for your DD if they need to investigate. Do you have a nice female doctor or nurse you could speak to?
Thankyou for your replies- I'll see how she goes....may take her to GP or nurse to get checked out but she isn't keen- blood defo coming from vagina- she has been updating me every 10 mins- showing me panty liner etc every 5 mins! Bless, she is just a baby, I'm a bit shocked, but have been calm and reassuring for her, obviously.
I've waited til she's safely asleep before coming back on here.
