I was on diaperswappers and lurked the breastfeeding board...and twice, I've seen people either a) show pumped and frozen milk that is yellow, or ask if its normal to have WHITE milk..
I always thought milk was supposed to be white??
LOL Whenever I pump, the milk is cows milk white..
So...
what color is yours?

Mine is yellow, but looks yellow when frozen. When my milk first comes in, it is very orange colored. On the days that I take my B vitamins my bm is alittle more bright yellow.

mine looks like skim milk, not white like whole milk, but like someone poured some water into the milk. When I freeze it it gets a very very faint blue tint to it, which I have noticed when I pump less than an oz.

Mine is pale yellow when pumped and when frozen. Sometimes when in the fridge it can have a slight greenish tint to it. I don't take any meds - just a prenatal vitamin daily.
