I had baby 5 days ago and i'm breast feeding. I noticed on day 3 when my milk came in huge lumps under my armpits. What could be the cause ?

In brief: See below

It can be inflammation in your breast, called mastitis with a reactive lymphadenitis in your armpit.
Check with your ob/gyn doc. You can still continue breastfeeding.
