He has a lump under his nipple. It seems to have appeared overnight, and it's slightly inflamed. I'll take him to the gp tomorrow, but I'm wondering what on earth it could be!

I'm still bfing...could it be an effect of my hormones?

My little girl had this, it was a cyst app really common.

Really? Oh good . How long did it take to go? And did the doc say why she had it?

It's still there, but doesn't seem to be any worse.

It can be hormone changes in both baby and you, her one was there about a month went down came back up tthen went again- just mention it to your hv or gp just for your own piece of mind- i panicked to but they ultrasounded it and it was a cyst.
