Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. Your 17 month old baby should now be weaned off of your breast milk and started on soft foods and gradually transitioning to regular foods. I would like for you to take the expert advise of a pediatrician in that case. I also think that the mass is something concerning and a visit with a pediatrician should allay your fears.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
