    Default 7 year old girl..... is this normal????

    My dd is 6 turning 7 this year. She has always been big for her age and currently wears anywhere between and size 9 and 12.... some size 12 shorts dont even fit her 😣 She is not overweight at all but extremely tall. She already has a very womanly figure with curvey hips, big thighs and little breasts. I've just noticed she has a lot of stretch males on the back of her hips. Is this normal? Should I be concerned at all? I have heard of early puberty but surely not this young???

    Google precocious puberty.

    Here is one link:

    If you are concerned about your DD, take her to see the doctor.

    Im not sure if this is normal but i wanted to comment. I know a little girl who grew breasts at 7 because she loved eggs. She ate eggs every day for breakfast.. unfortunately the eggs she was eating were loaded with hormones. When she went to the doctor they changed her diet and her development slowed down. It may be worth having her looked at by a doctor.

    I'm sorry but this is a furphy. There are no added 'hormones' in any chickens in Australia and hasn't been since at least the 1960s.
    If a change of diet slowed her 'growth' then its likely that your friend's daughter developed early due to high caloric intake.

    It's all the endocrine disrupting stuff that they grow up with. Plastics, fragrances, cleaning products. It disrupts hormones and brings girls into puberty early and disrupts your weight. Low tox is the only way to go replace your cleaning products with natural, eliminate everything in the house that has "fragrance" in it, growing up with plastic, cooking in it, playing with it, the fumes of new plastic products is ugly. Follow Alexx Stuart low tox living if you want to find out more info on these topics.

    OP I think you should see a doctor and express your concerns with them. There are many theories out there as to why some kids develop early in life, but a trusted doctor should be your first step.

    Hi OP, stretch marks just like developing breasts and a curvey figure are all normal for puberty, I agree with pp's that it's probably best to see your gp and express your concerns, if it's precocious puberty they be able to tell you.
    I don't mean it in an alarming way just that you may need to prepare yourself for some conversations a little earlier than you expected.
