It's common: The hormone (prolactin) that causes you to secrete breast milk passes into your baby through your milk. Both boys and girls may get small, firm lumps under the nipples, and often will express breast milk, especially when the nipples are lightly squeezed. This is completely normal and not a cause for concern. This can persist for months, especially in breast fed babies.
