7 month old female with pubic hair

My daughter is 7 months old.  She started to develp pubic hair at 4 months old.  Our pediatrician states that it may be nothing to be concerned about and wishes to monitor the hair growth of hair visually.  At first we followed up in 4 weeks now she wants to see her again in 8 weeks.  Should I be concerned?  Should I insist on following up with a specialist or blood work?  She is a physician and I want to trust her word for it, But I do feel uncomfortable about my daughter having pubic hair so young.  She was born full term, but I did have gestational diabetis during pregnancy.  Could this have something to do with her developing this issue.  She is also drinking allimuntum formula do to intolerance to regular formula.  May that have anything to do with her also having this situation. Could you please help me with any information.

Hi I dont know if this is any help but my son has awful armpit odor and when I brought him to the Doctors she said it could be something with his Adrenal Glands which puts out hormones. She told me to watch and see if he develops pubic hair or facial hair. He might be going through early puberty. I dont know..I myself question their word. I mean if it gets to the point where he develops hair wouldnt it be a little late? I think bloodwork should be done so maybe my son can be put on medication to prevent him from developing body hair so early in his life. If I were you I would go see a specialist and get bloodwork done. It obviously isnt normal for a 7 month old to have pubic hair.  Teenagers who been through puberty develop pubic hair not a 7 month old infant so for your daughters sake I would see a specialist and get as much testing done to get some answers.
