    I could feel my DDs booty inutero. I couldn't work out what the extra bump was. She was born with booty and now at age 5 wears size 12 WOMENS underwear. She is tall and chubby, but it's a proper grown up booty.

    If a change of diet slowed her 'growth' then its likely that your friend's daughter developed early due to high caloric intake.
    my sister had similar. started developing little boobs at a young age. my mum took her to the gp who advised we keep away from chicken. apparently it worked.

    who knows, i was always sceptical myself but who the hell knows what's in the food we eat.

    Stretch marks are not uncommon. I wouldn't worry to much about them. It's just from the rapid growth. She must have had a big growth spurt.
    If your worried about her going into a early puberty see your gp.

    thats the reason i only buy free range chicken and eggs. I know they use growth hormones in chickens (not free range) it makes them grow quicker and therefore cheaper cause they sell heaps.

    Please I advise you to see your gp

    I got stretch marks on the sides of my hips when I was in year 6 - I was just tall and my skin stretched. Good news is that they faded and were no longer there by the time I was around 15. You could speak to your doctor but I think it just happens to some people.

    Now I just have them on my tummy thanks to 3 pregnancies!

    Chicken in Australia does not contain hormones!

    I'm a teacher and have had the rare occasion where my 8 year old student has got their period, so yes she might be starting puberty early. As for stretch marks that's caused from her growing tall fast. I'd see your gp for a chat.

    No chickens in Australia are fed hormones, it's the antibiotics, chemicals and what processed food they are fed you need to watch
    Only organic chickens can be totally pesticide, antibiotic and not fed GMO chicken feed - free range can sometimes be just as bad as caged chickens so double check before buying free range chickens as to what their antibiotic policy is and what they are fed
