Bella is now 13 months old and still has moderate body odor. It doesn't seem to be as bad in the winter as the warmer months. Largely bc she has a barrier of clothing between her armpits I think, vs wearing tank tops and dresses in summer. We have an appt the end of March at an endocronologist doctor who will I guess be running tests that my pediatrician did not run. The endo dr. still wanted to see Bella even after the blood work came back normal for estrogen levels and such. I guess they know exactly what to be looking for.

I actually used my deod. on her in the summer months when the bo was out of control. My pediatrician told me not to, but she wasn't walking around with a stinky baby either....it didn't break her out so no harm done in my opinion...hehe

I will post the results of the dr. findings.

Hi Ladies!

My son has had body odor in his armpits only since he was 2 months old!!! My pediatrician said that it may be a pituitary problem, which makes him produce too much testosterone, or too much growth hormone. She said to keep a watch on his testicles and body hair. If his testes get abnormally large and he has an abnormally heavy amount of body hair then they would start to worry, but otherwise its a phase, and maybe he'll grow out of it!! It still worries me though. He doesn't have any of those other symptoms, but his body odor is like a grown mans!!!!!! I hope its just a "phase". I'm thinking of requesting blood work as much as i hate it, to test his hormone levels, just to rule it out before maybe something goes on unlooked at for too long!! Good luck!

I was one of the original posters on this topic. I had the same issue with my lo. hes 2 now. It honestly turned out to be nothing. I was worried it was hormonal too. My ped said it wasnt the most common this to have bo but it wasnt unheard of. She also said it was pretty rare that it was because of a hormone problem.
Good luck!

It just reminds me how tough it can be getting to know your child as a mom. Thank God for the internet.

I have a 3 1/2 month old boy and he has body odor as well. Not just everyday baby stink when he spits up or drools, but straight up MAN smelling body odor. I haven't been able to find much on the internet so I may just have to take him to the doctors.

Dear Proud Mama -- I am not sure you'll get this since the post is so old, but I am very interested to know how your baby's tests turned out. My 5-month old baby boy has body odor in his armpits. I thought it might be just bacteria collecting in between baths, but now I am concerned it's a bigger issue.
