    Default Milk way too yellow

    I pumped yesterday and the milk seemed fine (white). I put it in the deep freezer for storage. Today out of curiosity i looked and i saw that it was a yellowish tone, not flouruscent but between a soft and medium yellow. The milk i usually store is white, even the next day. Does this mean it's more fatty or something else?

    yep it could be, the fatty hindmilk portion is sometimes more yellow, darker and the thinner portion is sometimes white, blue, green, etc. Still all good!

    Yesterday's milk was also yellow. You guys are right but for a minute i felt like my milk came out of Dr. Seuss' imagination.
