How old were you or your child when you/they got pubic hair?

I noticed mt 7.5 yr old growing some already. Should I be alarmed? I don't remember having hair down there that young.

  • I know a lot of people believe all the hormones that are in the meat and milk we drink the cause of early puberty

  • My dd is 8 and it's starting plus she is developing breast buds already. I was young so I am not all that surprised.

  • I was in first or second grade. But I didn't start to get breasts until middle school and it took forever for them to grow. And no period until just before 9th grade. So just becuase you are seeing hair, doesn't mean all of puberity has set in, as it's a process.

  • Not a belief-it's been proven!

  • My family has late bloomers:
    Me 13-14
    DD 12-13

    I would probably put in a call to the pediatrician just to see what he/she has to say about it.
