hi there... i just had my baby girl on october 6, and she was delivered at 35+1... i am a first time mom and have so many questions and concerns it's ridiculous! anyways... i noticed a lump on her lower spine early one... but didn't think anything of it since the delivery team, nicu team, and her pediatricians never showed any concern. however, my mom came over and gave her first granddaughter a bath and totally freaked out about it! so then i got to wondering... is this something serious? perhaps none of the doctors or nurses even noticed! despite coming home with me at 2 days old, she did have high jaundice scores & had problems with weight-gain for 3 weeks, and maybe with all that going on, nobody bothered to look at her back? did anyone else have this issue, should i be worried, call the doctor, or what?

hi, i don't know anything about this but I would just give my pedi a call. Or I would at least mention it at her next appointment. I hope its nothing serious.
