  • Yes. That's what Clostrum looks like. I used to know what the different colors were made of (what nutrients/antibodies were in each of the clear part and yellow part) but I can't recall it off the top of my head.

  • And to come out different colors on different sides, yes that's normal. You're body is working on producing the "pre-milk" that you'll use to feed your newborn until your milk comes in. Leaking produces all sorts of interesting things when pregnant.

    Don't push on your boobs or do anything to express the Clostrum though, that can trigger labor contractions.
