Gynecomastia = over-: development of male breasts. Breast buds from maternal estrogen in newborn boys & girls can persist till 6 months. Breast buds can also occur in both from 6 months-3 years, more likely in girls. If serial measurements of breast tissue shows shrinking/no increase over 6 months & no other signs of premature puberty exist, a baby girl has benign premature thelarche. See consumer reference below.

Her pediatrician will do serial measurements, differentiating breast tissue from fatty tissue. See http://informedparent.com/articles/view/premature-breast-development-in-infants-and-toddlers. Benign premature thelarche needs no treatment.
