  • It's early for sweat glands to be working...but if they are, the smell certainly is normal.

    you can always take her to the doctor. Rule of thumb: If you think you should see a doctor, then you SHOULD see the doctor.

  • My oldest boy started having some under arm odor around that age, but I don't know if that's different because he's a boy. I just make him use deodorant and shower daily, which is healthy personal hygiene anyway...IMO. I'd ask her doctor, I know I was like holy crap B.O. at 5? take care :)
