My 6 year old son has pubic hair?

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

This morning while my 6 year old son Asher and I were in the shower I noticed he has a few blonde pubic hairs above and around his penis and some on his balls. My husband Will says it is normal, but im not sure should I take him to his pediatrician? Does any other mom have this same problem?

I believe they call this Precocious Puberty...

and yes, I would talk to his pediatrician, soon. There are a few issues that should be looked at if your son is properly diagnosed. He could have pituitary could affect his muscular and skeletal development.

I would call the pediatrician today.

Here's a good place to start reading...

Yes, take him to the pediatrician. Early puberty can be caused by a pituitary problem.
