Yep, it changes colors! You have more milk in the morning time and it is generally thinner milk and will look watery and almost blueish LOL At night you may notice you pump less milk but it is thinker and more yellowish. That milk has more fat in it. I can't remember why your body does it that way (I will go look it up) but it is a perfectly natural cycle.

I have BF my kids and EBF the youngest (no paci or anything) then was able to extended BF him until 2yo. But I am one of the weird ones that likes to pump to build a little freezer stash. It makes me feel more secure just knowing I have a days worth of milk on hand just in case.
