Hello fellow mamas!
I'm new to the site and just had a question! My daughter is 22 months old, 2 in July! We still nurse when she needs a nap, goes to bed, or any other time she needs comfort. Well, she nurses mainly from my right breast since that's the side I sleep on, so when she sleeps with me it easy access! Anyway, my boobs recently started feeling tender so I'm assuming my period is coming soon. She NEVER nurses on the left boob and never even tries. I have tried to get her to and she refuses it. Tonight I got curious and tried hand expressing my left boob to see how much comes out but it was brownish white and only a couple drops came out. It wasn't like the milk coming from my right side(creamy white a steady flow). I assume it's because she never nurses from that side but why the brown color? Almost like rusty pipes haha. Has this happened to anyone else? Again, she is 22 months and hasn't nursed from the left side in probably 10 months. I googled and found stuff saying possibly my diet or blood from getting used to nursing. But if it was my diet, I figured it would affect the right breast as well and I'm pretty sure it's not blood since my boobs are plenty used to being nursed on. Sorry for the long post but it freaked me out! Thanks!
