Early puberty 3 year old
I would love to hear from anyone who has any experience or advice for me. My beautiful 3 year old daughter is developing pubic hair, under arm hair and leg hair. She also has body odour like a teenager. She also sweats profusely when she is asleep. At first I put the hair down to her being mixed race, therefore having dark hair and the b.o. down to it being very difficult to lift her arms to wash her properly. But when I noticed the under arm hair this morning I cannot deny the very real possibility that my baby is going through puberty. I have been reading that it is common for girls with CP to start puberty very early even as early as 1 years old. I am going to call her paediatrician first thing in the morning but I would love some advice from anyone even if it is just the name of a decent mild deodorant to use on her. What I am worried about the most is that I have read that if a child goes through puberty very early then they could go through the menopause late teens or early twenties, which could result in osteoarthritis and brittle bones. My daughter already has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and extensive problems and pain associated with it, she can't be tortured any more. Any advice would be greatly appreciated xx
