Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

my 9 year old has been getting her period and no one knew

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
We have one bathroom so I had to pee while my daughter was showering. I noticed her underwear had light blood stains. I asked her if she had blood in her underwear and she said sometimes. Over the past few months she's grown small breasts but she also has a bit of a tummy so I wasn't sure if it was just extra weight. She said it was underwear so she didn't talk about it. Geez! NINE YEARS OLD! She still plays with Barbies. :'(

I was 14 as well, and my dd ended up starting hers at 13.  I prepared her for earlier though because her aunt on my ex's side said she was 9 when she got hers.  So, it's in my dd's blood, and I wanted her to be ready for it just in case.

Guess I was a little older when I started mine then most people were, I was 14. I am glad too lol. I wish you luck on this. But I have to say I am glad I have boys lol.

 I got mine at 11, but my pedi told me that girls are starting their periods as young as 8. That I should expect my daughter to get hers within the next year or two. She just turned 7

I do this as well. I get bashed for it as well.

That's why my dd consumes only organic milk and meat and doesn't use products with parabens in them. People on here love to harass people like me, but there's a reason little girls are getting their periods earlier and earlier as a whole. So I'll keep doing my part to prevent my child from going through puberty when she's too young. It's unhealthy in many ways.

My dd is 13mo. It's never to soon to start. Even if you're breast feeding you can be cautious of your diet(since a lot of it is transfered to your milk.) Milk and meat (and many other foods) have ridiculous amounts of hormones in them. I buy certified organic that is not allowed to have those (and other harmful things) in it. Shampoos, lotions, sunscreens, etc contain parabens which also effect your hormones. You can find products that don't have these in them. These are just examples. There is much more. Of course genetics plays a role in when a girl starts puberty but there are other factors as well. Pumping a child thoughtlessly and uselessly with hormones and hormone altering chemicals on a daily basis is not helping at all. My suggestion is that you do some research on some of the things I mentioned and go from there. Then you'll be able to decide if a similar route is important to you as well.

How do you go about that? What's her diet like? I have a daughter (and granted she's only 6 weeks lol but still) and I started my period at 10...I would hate for her to start so young, it really messes with your head.

I agree.

But we avoid milk and meat all together for the most part. Organic, free range for a treat now and then.

Parabens are a huge problem most parents don't know about.
