Is Your Baby Producing Breast Milk?

If so, don't be worried -- this is normal. When you are pregnant, there are all sorts of hormones that you produce, some of which are passed on to your baby. Sometimes those hormones cause your newborn baby to appear to grow breasts and produce milk, but this is only temporary and will subside in a short period of time. This happens to both boy and girl babies alike and is normally not painful to your baby; however, if you are concerned that your baby is experiencing pain, see your pediatrician.

i just experienced this with my new baby girl niece. I went to change her diaper and i got scared when i saw her breast really hard and her nipples were leaking. I had never seen or heard of that in my life. The doctor explained that it's normal and that sometimes it means that she'll menstruate at an early age.

I noticed this in my son. I was bathing him and noticed his chest was swollen and hard.When I touched it milk came out. It completely freaked me out. So I took him to his doctor's office who told me it was normal and would go down.

When I lifted my 2 weeks old baby girl under her arms, two drops of milk appeared on each nipple. Got scared first, but then calmed down... Hopefully it resolves soon. Her breasts look somehow engorged too.
