I think you need to stop eating yellow highlighters for snacks

I think it's about 6 ish hours. But don't quote me. Check out the Kelly mom website maybe it will say.

Hmmm, if you have LLL's Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, I'm sure it will say. I have a copy, but I'm too lazy to get up and find it right now...!

i've had it be yellowy off white colored before or slightly greenish or even slightly blue colored but never almost fluorescent yellow. It's a little creepy.

I'm sure that it isn't anything serious. Maybe you need to drink more water to flush through whatever your eating.

okay so it was in the fridge overnight so it's separated and the color is even more vivid. this is a picture i took this morning against a piece of computer paper. and it's a cell phone shot.
