If you are a first time brand new mom who is breastfeeding and might have noticed the breast milk taking on a pinkish or brownish hue, you should watch today’s episode of The Doctors – what does it mean
During the show, co-host and board-certified OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry explains.
When a new mom starts to breast feed a lot of blood rushes to the area and sometimes some blood gets into those milk ducts and changes the color of the milk. This is more common with first time moms, it only lasts a few days and it is 100% safe for you to keep giving baby the breast milk.
However, if there is a lot of blood present, or if it is persistent, it could be a sign of infection and you should call your doctor.
