Last summer my Dd was 8 and developed her breast buds. They where very painfully and tender. Took her to the GP and all was OK. I got her some crop tops so tops didn't rub and although the heat in summer was uncomfortable, it's was better.
Then they went again over the cold months.
But now that summers here again, so are the buds.
She is back into her crop tops for comfort.

Is this normal for them to come and go?

She also has some pubic hair since 8 too. It seems to be developing more now too.

I've been googling but all I can see is that they can develope from this age upwards. Nothing about how they develope or different versions of normal.
