Expert Answer :
It may be due to estrogen in the mother. The lump generally goes away on its own as the estrogen clears from the baby`s body. It can happen to boys and girls.

Premature thelarche. Check to look out features of virilization in this girl. If none is present and the baby is well otherwise, reassurance and observation are all those necessary in general.
