  • I'm not bf'ing anymore but when I was it was a cream/white color. Depending on what I was eating it would have a greenish tint to it also.

  • Yeah it's okay to be different colors. I've heard of light purple too. My hindmilk looks like whole milk but until then it looks like nonfat milk.

  • IM CURRENTLY BREAST FEEDING AND IT COMES OUT LIKE A CREAM COLOR. IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU EAT. SOMETIMES IT COMES OUT LIGHTER THAN OTHERS

  • my friend is bf and when she was eating greasy food all the time she noticed her milk seemed more greasy.
    when i eat a lot of salads it turns green.
    i think everyones milk is different. it doesn't matter what color it is as long as your baby is satisfied and growing strong.

  • Mine was slightly blue-grey or purple. Especially once I froze it. The color doesn't matter at ALL, all that matters is that you're nursing enough to let your baby get hind milk (which has the most calories) at each nursing session. Even if that means that you have to nurse only on one side at a time.
