    Neonatal Breast Enlargement with Discharge (Witch's Milk).
    Falling levels of maternal estrogen at the end of pregnancy, triggers the release of prolactin from the newborn's pituitary.

    Correct answer:

    Yes, this is post-partum mammary gland tissue hypertrophy (and secretion) due to maternal hormones derived from the placenta.

    It's a harmless condition that's seen in many children. It resolves spontaneously in a matter of days.
