It is just a heartbreaking to know that I have to push my little girl to use the deodorant.
Even it looked so big to hold in her hand, but couldn't find just "deodorant" in small size as of yet.
However, it is better than the kids get bullied due to the BO.
God created everyone in equal, I would say, better to feel that my kid is not sick, but thinking about her might get bullied due to the awful smell makes me so worried and sad.

Currently looking for the best deodorant in Canada, please help anyone knows about it.

My daughter started needing deodorant at 8. Tom's of Maine. Didn't work. We r using a natural mineral rock deodorant. But it needs to be applied twice a day to be effective. Due to eczema, we shower every other day. Try washing just underarm each night at bed, this helps. I also heard switching girls to organic milk can help reduce odor.

I have been looking for advice for 8.10 year old daughter who needs deodorant. I couldn't believe it, but the smell was awful. I have found this great roll-on especially for kids called Freshkidz without aluminium, parabens and alcohol, so not bad for her skin
which is what I was worried about. It seems lots of kids need deodorant at a young age.
Whew!! not the only one.

Ah, the wonderful world of odors...I know it well.

We use Tom's of Maine as a natural, chemical free deodorant. Along with showers every 2 days...seems to work well.

Depends on the kid. My oldest started needing it at 8.5. It really depends on when they start puberty. ;)

As long as they are taking daily baths with SOAP a child under 10 should smell good. If they are over 10 they may need to use deodorant. Make sure they are using soap and if they use a lot of garlic this could be the culprit.

How old are they?

Have you tried to get them to use Deodorant?

How often to they bathe?

Have you asked them to use scented bathing products?
