Re: girls period
Wow, sounds like your little girl is growing up! I don't have a daughter but I've heard of periods starting at that age for some.
The only other thing I can think of where she would have some spotting is if she might have a bladder infection.
Does she say it stings or anything like that to urinate? If not, then it's probably just her hormones getting ready to do their thing.
I'd say if it concerns you, you could always call the pediatrician or your family doctor for some advice to set your mind at ease.
Isn't it something when you see your babies start maturing before your very eyes?! I have two boys, one 20 and 15 and remember all the changes that took place which seemed to be an early age and it sure makes you realize that they no longer are babies!
