my 1 month old has a lump under each nipple area

...it moves around when touched. they are like cysts, not your normal hormonal swelling from moms. has anyone else encountered this? any idea on what i can expect from the pediatrician??

  • my baby had the same thing at that age. I freaked out! Her doctor said it was from my hormones getting into her system.
