Thread: Foamy or bubbley milk

    Default Foamy or bubbley milk

    Has anyone ever had foamy or bubbley milk just from one side?? Coloring and smell is normal. I don't have any pain, fever or cloggs either.

    Do you mean when you pump? The milk is probably streaming faster on one side than the other causing bubbles to form in the bottle. I got bubbles forming in my milk when I pumped sometimes. I wouldn't call it foamy, but definitely a little bubbly.

    I don't know about breastmilk from one side or the other (Phi's explanation makes sense to me) but I do know that one mom’s milk can look very different from another's and it's fine. Basically, barring a mom’s ingestion of a dangerous drug, if it comes out of the breasts it's OK, even if you DID have an infection the milk would still usually be safe for baby.
