around 8...because he stunk lol.
Mine are 11.5, 9 and 6 and so far we have no noticable body odor from any of them.
My oldest is a very active dancer and I bought her some natural girls deodorant last summer but she has not NEEDED to wear it regularly yet. I'm sure puberty is coming soon though and according to her peditrician, that will be one of the first signs.
Each started when they started going through puberty... for dd that was about 9, for ds about 11. As for when we knew it was time for them to start...lol...because they were getting stinky.
When they come in from outside or school and I can smell them, its time for deodorant.
Quoting lovemymini: 6. He smells like a boy lol.
My youngest is 6, and I make him put it on before Taekwondo. My other two are 8 and 10, and both wear it daily.
Quoting TurtleMomma82: Ds is 8 and he started on his own because his teacher said the class stunk.

Quoting Anonymous: My older daughter (now 12) started reeking at the end of 2nd grade, so it was deodorant time. No parabens, no aluminum.
