"One day I was feeding Allie and realised her hair was soaking wet. Then I realised it was coming from my ampit.

"I thought I was just really sweaty but then I noticed this huge lump."

She continued: "So I squeezed it and milk squirted out. So I went to the doctors thinking maybe I had a third nipple.
