Dear Trodat,
It depends on her height and weight - some kids do develop some secondary sex signs early if they are tall or heavy for their ages. Just watch it - if anything else develops like more hairs, breasts or underarm hair - please take her to your pediatrician for a check up. They usually need to start developing only from about 10 years.
