A friend of the family just recently said she had a nephew born without nipples. Has anyone ever heard of or seen this? In the 17 yrs. I've been a NICU nurse, i've never seen this. At first I thought it wasn't true, then my mom saw a picture of the baby and said there weren't any nipples. Don't know the gestational age the baby was born, but he weighed about 3 lbs.
What is done is a case like this? Does it matter since the baby is a boy?
