  • My 9 year old has begun wearing deodorant in the past few months because he gets pretty rank now. Other than that, nothing else.

  • I have spritzed the girls with some of my perfume or body spray. But not deodorant because it can change the PH in their body and they will start smelling prematurely.

  • My kids started wearing deodorant at 8. My daughter wears vanilla perfume on occasion, but my boys don't wear any cologne.

  • My 8 year old needs her deoderant and my 2 year old wants to wear it because the rest of us do. I just dab it on the outside of her tshirt to play along. They both like to use body spray since I wear perfume often. As long as it is just a little bit, they can use it.

  • My MIL went out and bought my 2 DDs perfume- Sweet Honesty or something like that. My girls are 6 and 8. They do NOT need their own perfume, especially something that smells as musky as that! I wouldn't have a problem letting them wear some body spray from like the bath and body works or something like that if I was putting some on, but I really don't like the perfume idea at this young of an age.
