Blue Breast Milk! Have you seen it?

Postby paljane8 » Sat Jan 31, 2004 12:00 am

I kid you not! I pumped last night for the first time in a while and it was the color of Crest only lighter! DH and I were shocked. And guess what? It is normal!!!!! I am sure that some of you that pump regularly have seen that (Catherine?). But, wow I was about to call Ripley because I didn't think he would believe it! After 4 kids I thought I had seen it all.

So, fyi, blueish milk and yellow milk is normal. Go figure.

Yup Nancy, BTDT. I've also managed something the color of a strawberry milkshake when my nipples were so cracked that they bled everytime I pumped [:p].

Sherry, do you remember non-homogenized milk? We used to have it at home in Ireland. "Top of the bottle" was a cheap substitute for cream. Pumped milk left to settle does just that, it looks like whey on the bottom and has a layer of cream on the top that would tempt you to stick your finger in! Breastmilk is incredibly sweet too.

You're funny, Sherry!

Any time something comes out of my body that is not neutral or earth toned, I get a little nervous.
