I've got 10 days to my due date and I've been leaking colostrum and it is green. No joke. Is this normal?

Well, I know breast milk can look blueish and colostrum is supposed to be yellow. Yellow and blue make green. I bet it fine. I'm guessing it's not neon green or glowing or anything.

That makes total sense. I went to the midwife today who told me that she's heard of it before and she's not concerned, so I'm not gonna worry. Thanks, I like having that explanation too.

Are you taking any vitamins? The Rainbow Light Prenatals turned my milk greenish (I think it might be the spirulina).

That's exactly what I am taking! Rainbow Light prenatal vitamins. Yeah, I feel so much better.
Thanks.
