ok so, this is going to sound like a really weird question, but i'll ask anyway. so i just had a baby 2 weeks ago and about a week ago i was changing and noticed that where his boobs are it's like a bump on both sides.  it's like he has little boobs. i thought it would just be completelt flat. i hope my description made sense.. is that normal?

Yes, if I remember correctly it is, something to do with your female hormones in him, don't worry.

yepp its normal...and usually by the time they flatten out they start getting fat from food so they come back cuz they are chubby....also if u think about it grown men have some fat there and women obviously do too...men have breast tissue too thats why they can get breast cancer also. and the tissue is usually there to help insulate the core of the body to keep it warm and protect it from freezing (if it ever happens to someone) its the bodys natural way to prevent any harm coming to it. its hardwired into our dna from caveman days. it goes away when kids get more mobile cuz they can help protect themselves. babies cant do that.

Perfectly normal and expected. It's from the hormones that cause your breasts to swell and stimulate milk production. In fact, if you were to squeeze it, real breastmilk may come out. They will go away in a few weeks.
