White Chunky Stuff?

So I just noticed that my Newborn has some white chunkies that is in his spit up/saliva. I seem to remember this with my first but that was 3 years ago. Both were/ are EBF.

Any idea what it it? I am pressuming it is milk, but why is it chunky? Does this indicate anything or is it completely harmless?

I have the same thing with my daughter.  She is my first, but I have asked so many people about it and they all say it is normal.  As soon as the milk gets to the stomach it begins to curdle which is why it is chunky.  From everyone I talked to it is perfectly ok and normal.  Good luck!

Normal, mine have had it too, I think* its like curdled milk thats why its chunky. Breast milk with stomach acids combined.
