My daughter is 27 days old and she has a white milky like discharge from her vagina. I am wondering if this is normal and what it might be???

Moving this from Q&S to Birth and Beyond.

I hope you get the answers you need and welcome to MDC.

totally normal (as long as there is no odor or other sign of possible infection) it is all your hormones in her from birth and breastfeeding. Some female babies even have vaginal bleeding mimicing a period. Mine did and boy does that freak out a first time mom!!

Another vote for normal from me too. Two of my daughters had it as well, and I wondered so I asked the ped. She said normal too, as long as it doesn't smell bad...
