Should I be worried that my baby uses my arm as a pacifier?

No: Doesn't sound like a big deal...Your arm is there, so why not just suck on it? Makes sense to your little one. Eventually, your little one will move on to just a passy. In the meantime, when he/she starts to suck on your arm, place a pacifier in his/her mouth and take your arm away. It will get better..Just takes time. Have you ever seen a teenager still sucking on their parents arms? Me either.

Let a Doctor see.: You should not treat a lump in your arm pit by yourself. Usually its a boil, but it could also be an enlarged lymph node , caused by infection or cancer. Do not shave your arm pit, keep clean and dry and see your doctor soon.

Unsure: The lump needs to be examined by a physician and considered in the context of any other possible symptoms. Common causes include lymph node enlargement (can be associated with simple infection such as a cold or mono, or can be serious such as an early sign of cancer). Biopsy of an enlarged lymph node may be considered. Cyst, fat deposit, inflamed hair follicle are some other possibilities.
