Re: How much "Cream" is on your milk?

Oh my Mamas.

OP, is baby gaining/growing steadily? Seems pleased and content? Wetting and soiling adequately?
If yes, then there is absolutely no need to be worried about how much fat you can see


I exclusively pumped for a few weeks with my first, after nursing and pumping. My second, I exclusively pumped for 8 and 1/2 months (I stopped because he was eating 64 oz a day and I was getting physically ill/hospitalized in my efforts to keep up!) I have lots of pumping experience to say the least.
What I found the most peculiar is that one breast often had more cream on the bottle than the other (I would be pumping a 9 oz bottle every pumping session PER breast for my second. Ridiculous much? I do not recommend doing this!) AND watching the color of my milk change! I have had greenish, bluish, purplish blue, pinkish, yellow...and the consistency!

My lo was slow to gain at first, I just nursed on demand and watched output. If there are wet and dirty diapers, relax mama! The fat content of milk varies all throughout the day, mine is usually pretty thin and I now have a super healthy little toddler.

I agree with you!
