  • i would be concerned b/c it hurts her, if it was both sides i'd say its her chest developing but just the one side, i'd take her in to be checked out just to be safe.

  • It could possibly be a bug bite and she's allergic to the venom?
    I'm allergic to mosquito bites - and my bite marks get very big, inflamed and they hurt/itch like all hell.
    I agree with vabchmommy, however, I would definitely just follow up with a doctor - just to see what it might be. The cause, etc.

  • You should definitely take her to the doctor to get it checked out.

  • I would get it checked out. It might be nothing, but you can never be too careful about things like that, especially with your baby girl. Good Luck!

  • You know it could still be her breast beginning to develop. My dd did that, one started before the other. But really if you are concerned at all just take her to her dr, couldn't hurt anything.
