I was changing my 2 week old DD's onesie this morning when I noticed a large lump on one side! It's right underneath her areola and big surprise, she's got another much smaller one underneath her other areola. So I immediately called the doctor who is going to call me back, and then I consulted google to find this:

How strange! I must have some crazy overload in maternal hormones!

i believe that is normal, it has something to do with our hormones crossing over to the baby during birth. It just goes away.

Very normal. Did you know some newborn girls actually have "period" like bleeding as well?
