pls what can be done to a baby boy of two weeks old whose breast is somehow big?
It is normal for newborns to have swollen breasts due to the exposure they had in the womb to maternal hormones. That said, it can last for 2 - 4 weeks and sometimes,in some breastfed babies, up to 6 months. Just leave it alone as squeezing or massaging it can lead to a serious infection.
It is due to the effect of the maternal hormones that are circulating in the baby's blood. As soon as the hormones wear off, the breast will reduce to normal size. KINDLY DO NOT MASSAGE or do anything. Just leave it
