My five year old complained of tender breast. (the left one) I examined her and it was "puffy" and felt like tissue inside. Two days later she cries emotionally all day. Literally, and this is not in her nature. My Ped. says normal. Girls are starting their periods at 8. Her birth date is 7/30/03. She just turned 5. What do you think?

I know of no girl who has started their period at 8. used to be around 12.

Is it normal? That I do not know...however if it continues take her back to the ped or get a second opinion.
