    Default My milk has a green tint

    My pumped milk recently looks very thin and has a green tint to it. Should I call my doctor?

    what have you been eating? seriously, different foods can tinge your BM. Also milk pumped at different times of day can be different consistencies.

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    I dont think its anything to worry about. I remember having blue milk alot. Milk can vary alot in color.

    Prenatals do this often. If I pumped just an hour or two after taking mine, it would be very green. At other times just a tinge of green.
