Mama to Amelia - age 6
seems like there might be hormones coming from something that might be getting through in the milk. i cant imagine that one togu binge would do i though. my dd had them for the first few weeks and then they went down, i do eat tofu probably almost once a day and hers havent come back. i might do a little more research if i were you...or see if your mw has any thoughts!
Yeah, I find it to be kind of weird, even if it is normal. I think this is common after a week or two of birth, but at this point she must be exposed to estrogen from somewhere (me?)...
apparently, one thing I've read that makes sense is that the baby's hormone producing system begins around 4 months and this can produce breast buds (but they shouldn't get larger, etc) and should fade or may remain until about 2 years when the body sort of reverses these developments. I don't think hormones should be coming through my milk in significant levels.
I have 2 older boys and never had to deal with this!
thanks for all your reassurance, though, mamas...
SAHM to DD1 8/06 , DD2 8/09 , and DD3 9/12 married to 6/99. We , , , , and lots of and .
I joke that DD has more cleavage than I did pre-babe (though I've always been quite flat chested, so that's not saying too much). However, she also has chubby thighs and fat rolls on her belly and back. I adore her EBF baby chub. She's getting more and more active, so I know she'll be thinning out soon.
I never thought to call these "breast buds". We joke about man boobs on chubby baby boys too. Is it just baby chub?
