DD will be 5 in june. For almost a year now. I have noticed that she has smelly arm pits.. i give her a bath every night before bed. and in the morning when i change her out of her PJs you can smell it. Now ive been putting deodorent on her everyday after her bath. and when she gets up and gets dressed and it helps.
at first i thought maybe its just me smelling things. but MIL asked if i have noticed it. and we where talking about it. she keeps her on saturdays and give her baths at bedtime and again when she wakes up. and says that if she doesnt put it on her she can smell it. is that normal for her to have to wear deodorant so young?

DD is also 4, and has stinky pits too.
We wash every night, and use Tom's deodorant in the mornings.
My guess is the hormones in the food and milk.
I brought it up with her doc at her last check up in November, and they said the same thing.

Im glad to know that! she gets emmbarrassed about it. we are in the process of looking for a new dr. every dr. we have had so far has either bailed and left town. or gotten arrested. so im tring to find one we feel safe at. (no luck so far!)

Oh my!
Yeah, definitely need someone you feel safe around.
We're military, so our doctors are military, but they change constantly. We hardly ever get to see the same person. Drives me crazy.



But when I looked into the topic, I found a lot of information about dairy products. Some people said that they cut back on the amount of dairy their kids had, and it eased up. But it's not an uncommon thing.

i will try that! she does eat and drink alot of dairy products. she also refused to eat meat. so veggies, fruit and dairy. is all she eats.
