  • My breastmilk seemed to change color quite a bit, I wouldn't be worried. The color can change based on what you eat and a small bluish tint is okay, I'm rather sure, mine was like that quite a bit, just a slight bluish tint.

  • I do not know it is blue very strange, It happens to me too. Sometimes it is thicker and sometimes like water. It is weird how the consistency changes

  • Mine always had a bluish tint. Matter of fact, that's how I taught my husband to distinguish a pitcher of breast milk from whole milk.
