Knot in baby's chest
My friend has a 2 month old infant who constantly squirms and cries (constantly) - she even squirms in her sleep. Her dr. says she has colic. When I was letting her lay face up on my chest and rubbing her stomach and chest I could feel a "knot" when she would strain or cry. It feels about the size of a grape with the texture (hardness) of a boil or rising. It moves around so it doesn't feel like a bone and it's located slightly to the left of center and about 1 inch below the breast area. Her Mom says that she assumes it is part of her sternum - is it likely that it is or could it be something that is contributing to the excessive movement and crying because of pain?
