Re: Blood in expressed milk.

I exclusively pumped for DD and there were several times that I ended up with blood in the milk... Both the dr and the head of lactation at the hospital where I work said it was fine to feed the baby that milk, even if it looked gruesome. Since the bleeding tended to taper off during the pumping session and it kind of grossed me out, I would pump for a little, discard the milk with the most blood in it (usually only about 1/2 oz), and then finish pumping... the remaining milk would only end up with a slight pink tinge.
