    Default Yellow Milk

    Okay, so been working for almost 3 weeks now ( back to work) and pumped for a month or so. Things are working out better than expected, only the past couple of days I've pumped a few bottles of VERY noticably yellow milk as compared to the white milk right next to it in the fridge. Could it be as simply as I took a different vitamin for a couple of days? what's up? any ideas? I'll see if it persists. Just something that deviated from the norm.

    Maybe your vitamin has extra beta carotene. That would do it.

    I had this exact thing happen a few weeks ago. My prenatals do not change the color of my milk but I ran out and took a regular good quality multi and my milk was so yellow it was almost green!

    It kinda freaked me out so I went back to taking the prenatals.

    I agree it's probably the B vitamins or beta carotene.

    I drank the Odwalla Blueberry B monster smoothie and my milk was pretty yellow. Sometimes foods have extra vitamins in them that you might not realize.

    Do you have extra milk? Consider donating!
