anyone else have coloured milk?
 
Mine is blue-green. :headscratch: Little one is on a nursing strike so i've started pumping and am surprised at the colour. I assume it is b/c of antibiotics I'm currently on. ...or the smarties I keep sneaking from our hallowe'en candy to give out. :giggle:

Seriously, though, has anyone else had this?

Mine was a yellow-beige color, lol. I have nursed three kids, and it was the same each time. Are you sure it's not the tint from the bottle/bag coming through, showing up as blue-green?

I've used these bottles with the last LO and earlier with this LO and milk was always white & sometimes a yellowish-white, as you described. Never blue-green before. I asked DH about it from across the room while pumping and he shrugged and said "looks normal to me" but when I brought the bottle to him afterwards it was "woah. Yes that is blue. Weird.":headscratch:

I've had some in the fridge overnight and it still looks blue today, so not just the lighting in the room, either.

FWIW, the antibiotics I'm on are a bright turquoise colour.

Yep, mine too, depending on what I eat. Now that doesn't automatically mean blue food = blue milk, but generally, for me, the higher in fat foods result in yellower (is that a word?) milk, lower in fat stuff is more blue.

Mine was white to bluish. Less fat in the milk can = more bluish tint. The more engorged I was, the more blue the milk was.

Mine runs towards the orange end. I make highly fatty milk (based on how much fat comes out and settles on the top) despite a lower fat diet. As long as it smells and tastes normal, no worries!
