Mom Lindsay, who went viral on TikTok, noticed her baby's hair was wet. At first, she thought, she may have been sweating, but then realized she had a lump in her armpit. When she squeezed it, milk squirted out.
Lindsay tells The Doctors the lump would get as large as a golf ball and was hard to the touch. She says when she breastfeeds her daughter, she leaks milk from both armpits and she now has to express the milk from her pits a few times a day to prevent it from becoming painful.
The Doctors and lactation consultant Priscilla Medina explain women have axiliary breast tissue in the area of the armpit and when they are breastfeeding it is not unheard of to produce milk in this area.
The lactation consultant says a buildup of milk in the armpit can be painful and if not expressed can lead to an infection called mastitis. The symptoms of mastitis include:
- Breast pain
- Warmth and redness
- Possible fever and chills
The lactation consultant tells other nursing moms this is normal and up to 6 percent (and maybe more) of moms experience armpit leakage. Priscilla explains this type of leaking will stop when you ween and shares there is no known way to prevent leakage in the armpit.
As for using this breastmilk to feed your baby, Priscilla says it could be okay to use if the area is clean and the mom is using aluminum-free deodorant. She says it comes down to personal preference and hygiene considerations.
