Hard lump in newborn's breast.. *edit
Has anyone dealt with this. My sister and my nephew live here. He is two weeks old and we noticed a very hard lump, size of a small marble, in his left breast. His breast looks swollen. But he has been extremely cranky(after eating, diaper change, swaddling, binky). Everything we looked up suggests it is normal and can be a milk duct. But if your baby had this, did it cause him/her pain?
She's calling the hotline and waiting for the ped. to call back but she wants other experiences with it! Thanks in advance.
Thanks ladies. You put her mind at ease but the doc is pretty sure everything is ok. He will look at it at the next appointment to make her feel better and to make sure. And just like some of you said, we don't think he was fussing because of it. With a lot of rocking, singing and rubbing his tummy, he is sound asleep!!
