You may notice that the colour of your breast milk changes over time. But, It can also change during the course of a day or even within the same feeding. Here's what they mean:
🍼1. Colostrum: Colostrum is the first breast milk that your body makes. You only make a small amount of colostrum, but it's concentrated and highly nutritious. While colostrum is sometimes clear, thin, and watery, it's more often yellow or orange and thick. The high levels of beta-carotene in colostrum give it its dark yellow or orange colour.
🍼2. Transitional Milk: After the first few days of colostrum, the production of breast milk increases and your body begins to make transitional milk. During this two week transition period, the colour of breast milk typically changes from yellow to white as your milk comes in.
🍼3. Mature Milk: After about two weeks, your body reaches the mature milk stage. Mature breast milk changes in appearance based on how much fat it contains. •
🍼Foremilk: In general, when the mature milk begins to flow out of your breast at the beginning of a feeding or pumping session, it is thinner and lower in fat. This milk is called the foremilk. Since foremilk is thin, it tends to look clear or bluish.
🍼Hindmilk: As you continue to pump or breastfeed, the fat content in your milk goes up. As the fat increases, breast milk turns into creamier milk called hindmilk. Hindmilk has a thicker white or yellow appearance. •

I can’t believe this baby boy is already 1 year old! Time really does go ridiculously fast with babies - and it doesn’t slow down as they get older either - I wish SO much that I’d had some newborn family photographs taken when my boys were born, I’ve got my phone pics which I’m thankful for but they’re just not the same... Newborn shoots might just be my favourite thing ever, I see how much they mean to the parents, not just for now but for always ☺️
