Question Bilateral lumps on baby feet?

My son has had a lump on the bottom of each foot since, well, we noticed it when he was a couple of months old. His previous pediatrician said we'll "keep an eye on them" and never said anything about it again. They are just small lump on the bottom of his feet, at the end of his arch, near his heel. He doesn't seem to have any pain there. We just had a visit to his new doctor (a family doctor, not a pediatrician) and he didn't check his feet, and I forgot to bring It up. Should I try to make an appointment to discuss it, or should I just wait until his next check up? Thanks in advance, for any advice.

If your pediatrician doesn't seem to know what they are, I think it unlikely that a GP would have any better of a clue. Certainly, no one having not seen the lumps can offer you the advice you request. I would think that any meaningful advice would have to be predicated on an examination. Why don't you take the child to a podiatrist to determine if it is anything worthy of concern?

4/23/12 My friend recently noticed bilateral soft fatty bumps on the bottom of her 5 month old's feet. They don't seem to cause discomfort. One has slightly decreased in size and developed a 2-3 cm. circular brown discoloration resembling a mole. She just took the baby to a pediatrician today who said they'd keep an eye on it, but did nothing.
On a side note- the brilliant nurse working there noticed a small bleeding cut on the baby's finger and put a band-aid on it. A few minutes later the baby turned blue and was choking. There were 4 nurses working on the baby before one of them put a forceps of some sort down the infant's throat and took the band-aid out. The mother nearly passed out! Nice, huh?
