Swollen breasts of newborn son
 
I am 34 years old and blessed with a son. He is 2 yrs. old now. When he was born and a few weeks afterwards he had swollen breasts and his testicles looked pretty big to me. Eventually everything looked normal but I still wonder what caused it. Would this problem crop up any time in future?

Answer
 
These changes are quite normal for the newborns and result from the influence of mother's hormones which the fetus absorbs. These signs resembling physical maturity disappear in a few weeks and will have no adverse consequences in future.
 
All the best
