Re: When did your DD start wearing a bra?

I was in 6th grade also. I think that used to be very average and not late. Isn't the average onset of menstruation about 13.5, or used to be for my generation (I'm mid 30's), so growing breast buds at 11 would be average also, since menstruation occurs 2 years after breast bud development.

Which is another thing to think about, your dd may start menstruating at age 10.

My dd is 10, but nothing yet. She's super skinny, though, and dh and I weren't exactly early in the puberty department. I would expect it in the next year some time. I'm dreading puberty, because we need to make some decisions about birth control for her, and nothing is a great option for teenagers.
