I was just changing my 3 month old's diaper and undershirt and I felt a wierd bump right under his breastbone. I am taking my 5 yr old to tghe dr tomorrow for a checkup so I will ask her if she can take a look but I'm nervous about what it could be-it's a hard, small lump. Any ideas? I am making myself crazy here! Thanks!

Have you heard anything yet? Did the dr. know what it could be? I know how scary it is to wonder what's going on with your little one - we had a big health scare this year with my son that ended up healing on its own. Hope you heard great news!

Yes, thanks- I showed it to the pediatrician, turns out it's just part of his bone that in some babies is more noticeable and sticks out a little more- I felt kinda silly but she said she gets that question a lot! I'm glad I asked though, just to be safe!
