~ So my hubby & I were in the living room watching TV & the kids come running in from the playroom asking if they could have some Jello.
We said that it was OK.
They were so happy that they started jumping up & down proceeded by the "Oh Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!" and smothering us with hugs & kisses.
(Yeah...Who knew Jello was that exciting?)
Anyway, all of the sudden hubby cries out; "Ewww... WTH is that smell??"
We immediately start sniffing around & then it hit us!!!
It was our 4 year old daughter's armpits!
And I kid you not, it smelled like the worse Adult-Onion-Stinking B.O. ...EVER!!!
4 years & 7 months to be exact!!!
She gets showered & spritzed daily!!!
Sooooooo...... Here's the question!
Is this normal for this age?
And for those with older kids... Do you remember how old your child was when you discovered they had armpit funk?
Thank you all for responding.
I feel better knowing that she's not the only one out there that has had the "armpit funk" especially at such an early age... LOL
It was just so surprising to us, because she's so little, weighing only 30lbs. & 3ft 3inches tall.
* To the woman who suggested TOM's Brand Deodorant... Thank you! I completely forgot about that. The thought of using regular deodorant is scary with them having so many chemicals.
** To the others, who suggested that could be from certain foods, that makes sense too & I will most definitely keep an eye on that.
*** And to all the teachers... I feel for you!
My friend's son once had an awkward note sent home from his teacher saying; "His shoes are smelling strong." YeeeOUCH! My friend didn't take that so well & gave the teacher a piece of her mind & a pretty good tongue lashing.
