Lump In The Baby’s Nipple?
tonight I have a child who is only 6 months old when I change my daughter’s banu fits on my child’s nipple because there is a lump on the left but when I hold it I don’t cry I’m afraid that’s why yeah
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The appearance of a lump on the baby's body is often worrying. However, this condition is often normal. In babies, especially newborns, slightly enlarged breasts or a lump in the nipple area can be caused by the mother's hormones during the womb that are carried by the baby. Over time, these lumps will disappear on their own without any trace or residual impact. Among other possibilities, which occur much less frequently, are the presence of cysts or benign tumors.
So because this situation is generally normal, there is nothing special that you need to do. But if you are still worried, or if a lump appears followed by redness, the baby is fussy, the baby seems in pain, or the lump is enlarging and multiplying, immediately consult the pediatrician for further examination.
Meanwhile, keep breastfeeding your child, and since he is 6 months old, it is time to introduce him to complementary foods or complementary foods. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
