Answer: Hello dear It is normal for babies to have mild or even swollen, enlarged breasts or lumps under the nipple. They are mainly due to exposure to maternal hormones in the womb. These lumps and enlarged breasts in the baby may be quite noticeable at birth. They might even continue to grow after birth for a while. If you were to pinch them, some real breast milk may be expressed. Over weeks, or sometimes even months, when there is no more exposure to the hormones, the breast tissue begins to shrink and eventually becomes quite flat. Occasionally a normal, small amount of tissue remains, but it does not grow or cause discomfort. Don't worry it will go itself

Question: hello, my baby boy is 20 days old.. and he is having swollen nipples just like small breast. some people are suggesting me to squeeze the milk out of them or he will have swollen nipples for the rest of life. i m really worried. it might be painful for my little one. what should i do. pls suggest.
Answer: hello dear.. They are almost always benign and due to exposure to maternal hormones in the womb. The same hormones that cause the mother's breasts to swell and milk glands to be stimulated can do the same to the baby's breasts. These lumps and enlarged breasts in the baby may be quite noticeable at birth. Over weeks, or sometimes even months, when there is no more exposure to the hormones, the breast tissue begins to shrink and eventually becomes quite flat. Occasionally a normal, small amount of tissue remains, but it doesn't grow or cause discomfort. Sometimes, overly worried parents touch and pinch the breasts so much that the area gets irritated. Leave them alone and let nature take its course in shrinking them. so dont do that dear.. many people say many things dont try to implement everything
