Second grader starting to develop

My second grader is starting to get little breast buds. This is no suprise to me really, because she lost her teeth early. Got her six year old molars at 4 1/2, and two of my sisters started their periods at the age of nine. A couple of moms have approached me about her maybe needing a bra at the beginning of third grade. When I bring this up with husband he looks like he wants to die, so no help there. She is still very little girl-fairies, Santa, the whole bit. I have talked to her about periods, how do I bring bras

Please talk to your pediatrician.
