Yes, my daughter is now almost 8 years old looking like 11 years old. When she was 4 years old we first noticed on her body odor of an adult. I thought this was a bit odd. She is not fat, she is not dirty. This is an ADULT body odor, not stinky kid sweat. We watched that for about 2 weeks when as a mommy with instincts I noticed her areola's puffing up. I thought "What on earth"!! I took her into the doctors and he didn't seem concerned. But with my persistance he sent me to a children's endocrinologyst. After much testing including a brain scan, ultrasound of ovaries, and bloodwork it was concluded that she was in puberty with no explanation why. (Idiopathic Precocious Puberty)
We were offered a synthetic hormone treatment of Lupron which would entail an injection every 28 days to surpress the progress. But after MUCH research we decided to not go for that potentiously dangerous treatment and went to a naturalist. For a year with the supplement regimond she was on we were able to drastically slow the progress down. After my husband was laid off, we were unable to afford it anymore (insurance didn't cover naturalists) and then her body went back at it. Since then we haven't had her on anything as not to totally confuse her body. She is now almost 8 (26th of this month) and she is very tall for her age, has breasts, adult body odor, pubic hair and is starting with armpit (auxillary) hair. It is a real shame, and we kept her on organic milk up until about a few months ago, as it wasn't really helping noticably. Plus it was expensive. However, I still recommend it because of the garbage in regular milk. Actually the healthier best milk for human digestion is goat's milk. Closest to our own. There is so much garbage in our food it's pathetic. But our other daughter so far hasn'r displayed any signs. So I do not know what makes some kids go into it and not others. Vaccines are to be concerned about too.
From what I understand, the order of events of puberty are as such; pubic hair generally appears after a noticable change in the breasts and a change in the amount of dark hairs on the legs. Hair in the pits then may begin to grow and then a period. You can expect a period approximately 2 1/2 to 3 years after the onset of breast growth. So we will be expecting our daughter's anytime now. Praise Yahweh she hasn't started it yet though.
Have you checked her little breasts to see if they look puffy (areola dark part will have a bud feel behind it? Does she have armpit smell? I would suggest you go to your doctor and get refered to an endocrinaologist if you are certain they are pubic hairs. You are not alone in this and it is getting more predominent, so much so that they have changed the "normal range" for girls to begin puberty to an earlier age. Please feel free to contact me by responding to me personally and I can give you my other contact info, as at times we feel alone here. Just watch her body for more Q's and let your mommy instinct guide you.
