Breasts are for feeding babies.

They don't. Normally they grow during puberty, which happens before adulthood.

As to exactly "when" a girls breasts start to grow, that depends on heredity, diet and the onset of puberty.  On "chubby" pre-teens they can start as early as age 8, but the average onset of puberty in girls is 10 1/2, with a range of  8 - 13.
