Change in color of milk
By Jo-Anne Lawless, HCA, LC
Q. Today when I pumped my EBM was a yellowish color. It has always been white. I started my first period since before I was pregnant and it has been very heavy. I was wondering if maybe that was why. This really concerns me and I hope that I am not hurting my baby who is 6 and a half months. I did not eat anything different.
A. You are not harming your baby in any way. Breastmilk changes throughout the nursing months (and years) with the age and needs of your baby and the changing of your own body.
If you had not been expressing your milk, you would have been blissfully ignorant of this change, but it is fine.
