I'm Liz, mom of 3 kids..2 boys (ages 8 and 5) and one little princess (age 22 months). I have been meaning to post here for a while about this question but never seem to get around to it. Anyways, my question is about personal hygiene for my 8 year old. At what age do kids normally start needing to wear deoderant? My 5.5 year old could get by with a bath a couple of times a week and still not smell but my 8 year old just...so not an option. I am really thinking about buying him some deoderant to combat the smell situation, but seriously..at 8?? Is that normal at this age? I keep thinking he is still so young, even though he is big for his age. He is one of the tallest in his grade (2nd) and not even a head shorter than me (granted I am only 5'1").
Seriously, can someone tell me if this is normal or should I be speaking to his pediatrician about this?
