    Body Odor

    Hello, I am Mom to an 8 year old boy in great health. We've been noticing adult body odor on him. Isn't it a little early for that? He takes regular showers and I didn't expect body odor until we started puberty. Anyone experiencing the same thing?

    Yes, my daughter started having body odor at age 8 also.

    She didn't begin "full-blown" puberty until age 12.

    I don't believe its that uncommon now a days.

    Take care!
