Breasts then develop from the downgrowth of epithelia into the mesenchymal tissue, which continues to grow.

How Long Does Neonatal Galactorrhea Last?
Discussion Galactorrhea is a milky discharge from the breast in a non-lactating female. Neonatal galactorrhea is sometimes called “Witch’s Milk” based on ideas from the 17th century or earlier that witches would steal the milk for use in their magic.

Enlargement of neonatal breasts and galactorrhea, both for males and females, is fel...
