Tonight I noticed that my 8 year old has a little lump under her nipple on one side only.  Initially I freaked out and was going to go to emergency  blush.gif   But, I've been googling and I'm thinking it's a breast bud.

Please tell me she's not going to go through puberty at 8????   ohmy.gif  

She has no other signs of puberty at all.  

Has this happened to anyone else?  How long after this did puberty start?

Possibly, i'd probably take her to a doc just incase though (not emergency, just your regular family doctor) original.gif

good luck to her if it is

Get it checked at GP.

I don't have experience with this but a friend has an 8yo dd who gets temperamental and major mood swings the same time the mothers AF is due. It's like she gets the symptoms but not the show IYKWIM.

I will definitely make an appointment to see the GP without a doubt, but I feel like I can sleep a bit better tonight now.

I'm pretty sure that's what it is though.  It's almost like the nipple is a little swollen and the hole in the middle is more like a tiny little slit instead if that makes sense.

No sign of any hair or pimples, so I think it's completely normal and I shouldn't have to panic just yet.   blush.gif   I got AF at 11, so I know the time will come soon enough.

I can remember clear as day my mum taking me to the Dr when I was in year 3 (so either 7 or 8 years old) because I had lumps under my nipples & we were told it was my breast buds.  I'm not 100% sure how soon after that my actual breasts started to show but I can tell you I got my first proper bra in year 5 (so 9-10 years old) & I got my first period when I was 12.  

My eldest DD is 7.5 & I'm already keeping an eye on her but I haven't noticed any changes yet.  Hopefully, she's still got a while to go hands.gif
