My 2 week old daughter is breast feeding and has developed small but noticable lumps under her nipples. There doesn't appear to be any discoloration, nor does she seem to mind them.

Please advise.

I remember reading somewhere that baby girls can appear to develop breast, its a hormonal thing, I believe that's whats happening with your daughter. I have a 2mon girl and the same thing happened to her. The swelling(lumps) will go away in a couple of wks. I hope this is the problem
