    Default Deoderant for young girls

    At what age did your daughter start wearing deoderant? We have started to notice that our 7 year old occasionally has BO under her arms. Would you let her use deoderant? What kind for someone so young? Is there a good natural one available?

    Gah, I so did not think I would have to deal with this stuff at 7. Let's hope the armpits is all there is to think about for now... I'm not quite ready for the rest.

    I had two of my cousins get their periods at very young ages 6 and 8. The 6 year old had to start wearing deoderant very early because she too started to smell of BO a bit. I do believe she was just given the regular stuff, but you could try all natural first to see if it works on her. Perhaps that natural rock they have out?

    My DD is 8 and I need to get her some deodorant too. There is a natural one at Under the Moon in Strath....can't think of the name now.

    My DS started using deoderant at age 7. The Dr. just told us to have the pharmacist recommend a good one for young kids. It has to be a deoderant, not an anti-perspirant.

    I've been using one by Battys Bath and I really like it. Kid-friendly scents (fruit, mint, coconut, etc) and it's deodorant. Shes local (though she just moved outside London) and you can shop Online or look at her website for places you can buy, I forget where.

    I would also recommend Battys Bath,

    but if it is not too strong then hold off and just let her go au natural.

    Like do you have to really stick your nose in her pit to smell it?
    Or does she stink up the room when she walks in?

    Cause if it is the first situation I think you can let it go.

    Thanks so much ladies. This totally caught my DH and I off guard! We noticed it this week. You can smell it at times without her being right near you.

    I think its normal for kids to kind of smell weird anyways. My kids always smell like outdoors and puppies and whatever else they've been playing with. My girls like perfume. They have Barbie and all different kinds of perfumes made for kids. That might be abother option.

    I like the Batty's Bath deoderant too. Soft and Dry also makes an aluminum free deoderant too, but not as natural as Batty's.

    My daughter was 6 when she started needing it. She is 7.5 now. No other signs of puberty. I get the Kiss my Face roll on rock from the Superstore. It is the only natural one that works for me and I have tried them all! She uses that.

    I am happy to learn of a natural local deodorant, that's awesome! I use Tom's of Maine and a crystal stone deo, I will try Batty's Bath in stead of TOm's next time. Thanks!

    I've never heard of a rock for deodorant. How is it different?

    Nevermind. I just looked it up. I was picturing an actual rock
