Paediatrician

It is not unusual these days for a girl of 11 years to have entered puberty. What is unusual is that your daughter is already wearing adult clothes at the age of 11 years.It would be best to ask your paediatrician to see your daughter and to decide if there is any need for concern or whether your daughter is simply following a family growth pattern.
