    Default 6 year old with body odour

    At what age did you introduce your child to deoderant? My 6 year old is getting BO like a grown up, not just sweaty kid smell. My son didn't have this issue till about age 10 or 11.

    I have got her some deoderant (NOT anti-persperant) and she baths everyday.

    my son has gotten BO on occasion for the past couple years. He's almost 10. we're trying to get him in the habit of wearing deodorant - I don't want him getting teased for it.
    where does the time go?

    I haven't had to yet. We've talked about it. And are considering her using when she plays soccer this summer. Just in case she's almost 9.5. What kind did you buy?

    My dd gets a stinky smell. I make sure she is bathed every other night guaranteed. No deodorant yet.

    dd started around 5-6 years old. DS is 5 now and doesn't have it at all.

    For dd - I gave her non-antiperspirant deodorant but I am tempted to start making natural deodorant for her.

    She hates putting deodorant on though. So we have emphasized the importance of scrubbing her armpits with soap when she has a bath/shower and that has helped a lot.

    My 7 year old DD has been using deoderant for about 6 months now. We bought Soft and Dri I think it is called.

    Maybe some antibacterial body wash? With some of my kids at work, this did the job.
