Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hi deepa...
dont worry...its a normal lump n will disappear soon when baby grows...it appears due to hormones of mother...by expressing tht some white like discharge will b there..but dnt express it..it ll disappear...

Deepa Makhija Hai.. most of the babies will have that thing... some both nipples and for some only one. DO NOT Press. Just leave as is... It will disappear in few days. If you try to press...or express...things will be worse. So better ...relax. It's the hormonal reflex.As baby have shared everything inside us for 9 months. It has even shared our hormones... That's y milk duct have activated. Do nothing ..it will go. It's a false symptoms and naturally occuring reflux.

Thank you for tagging me Roopashree Siddireddy... Deepa, never squeeze out the milk, its called 'Witch's milk" which is the remaining hormone from mom's body...  If squeezed out, it can even cause infection, which we definitely don't want. Let it be, don't rub it or touch unnecessarily, it will go away when the hormones go down... if there is any irritation or swelling or redness, then only you need to be concerned... take care dear...
