I don't quite know how to put this or what is happening, but my 5 years old daughter Jaslyn has had what looks like puffed up boobies for the last couple days. Yesterday I finally decided to touch it to see if it was hard (didn't really want to for fear of what I might find out) and it was hard. They look a little red and she says that it hurts. I called the doctor's office today and am waiting on a call back to find out what could be happening.
My question to you ladies is... Can a 5 yrs. old develop breast? I didn't start developing until I was 12-13yrs. old. I was really late with everything. If she is going to develop early or is developing early it can only be from two things that I can think of- 1. DH's side of the family (his mother's side seems well endowed in every area) or 2. She eats a ton of meat and that stuff has got to be pumped full of hormones. I mean she only like to eat her meat at dinner. She doesn't eat bread or rice or anything but meat.
I told DH yesterday and he was really upset about this. He says he isn't ready at all for this kind of thing and being that she doesn't speak well yet he worries about her developing early and someone trying to take advantage of her.
I don't even know if this is just completely ridiculous and the cause of her swelling is from something else.
Enlighten me please!!
