Possible tick bite: Sometimes a 'bruise' like rash can develop after a tick bite- so I would advise you to show this to a doctor who could help you. Both ticks and mosquitoes inject saliva when they bite, so the result can be an itchy spot later on. Ticks like skin folds, so not sure if this bite is closer to your arm pit or something where it would be a good spot to hide? Ticks (nymphs) can be VERY SMALL too.

Is it normal for my breasts to leak every time I hear a baby crying?

Yes: Absolutely, this is how it works! crying is one of the most powerful stimulants of breast milk production. In short - babies are supposed to cry - it helps breast milk production and is a healthy part of the cycle.

What are the best ways to store breast milk?

Fridge: You can store breast milk in the refrigerator for up to 8 days and in the freezer compartment for up to 2 weeks. If your freezer has a separate door, you can store breast milk for 3-6 months. Be sure to clean containers (plastic or glass) in a dishwasher or wash with hot, soapy water. It's best to fill individual containers with the amount of milk your baby will need for just one feeding.

Short answer is poor: There are many things you need to be aware of, and much of the literature or media-fueled "information" is based on a broad cross-section of surgeons (not all abps-certified plastic surgeons experienced in breast augmentation surgery).

Duration?: Local pain, itching, and redness of the skin are typical after a mosquito bite. There is usually an immediate wheal and flare response that peaks at about 20 minutes, or a hard, itchy, bump that peaks at two to three days and resolves over the ensuing days to weeks.

Agree. And don't scratch it. It will take longer to resolve.
