I have noticed in my 5 yr old recently, like when he started kindergarten, that he has BO already is that normal!?!?!? He bathes everyday!!! Yet he already gets bad BO and i don't want his friends at school to start making fun of him or something. What do i do!? Do I let him use some of my Secret Baby Powder scent??? Its pretty mild deodorant on your skin but it works very well. Has anyone else had this problem with their kids??? Should i be worried about something!? Any help is appreciated!

EDIT: Changed DO to BO sorry for the typo!!!! Long Monday! :)

My oldest son got BO by kindergarten too. I noticed that at recess and gym he really played hard and would sweat alot. I started showering him in the morning so he would be nice and fresh for school. By the time he was 10 he was using deodorant and body wash. He loves that Axe stuff too. I don't think anything is wrong with him. Me and my son always joke about how he sweats like a man and I'm pretty sure he finds it more flattering than embarrassing.

You're not alone. My son has become a deodorant user as well. Some kids body chemistry just starts to change like that.

Both my sons sweat if its 70 degrees or higher.. Shower in the morning.. Power them and spray with axe then when they get home shower again hope that helps

My 7 year old daughter had BO too. The doctor says some people just have more active sweat glands than others. I bought her teen spirit deodorant and it helps a lot. On a boy I might use unscented deodorant tho. Good luck!
