The reason I'm posting it here is because you folks have obviously given a lot of thought to issues about medically unnecessary surgery for babies. It's not like circ because a 3rd nipple is obviously not standard equipment but he was born with it. My friend is concerned about him being teased and feeling uncomfortable about it when he's older.

Anyway, would love to know what you wise folks think.

It's interesting that if a baby has a port wine stain on his face, it is removed but if it is anywhere else, the drs think it is better to leave it alone.
