Hey, Mamas!

Breastfeeding can be hard sometimes and it's okay if you have a lot of questions about it. At Mommy Knows Best, we aim to educate moms through our educational materials to make breastfeeding a little bit easier.

Here are some answers to a few FAQs about breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding FAQs

1. Why is my breast milk different colors?

Why is my milk different colors

Your breast milk's color can change due to various reasons. If it is:

Red/Pink:
Foods like strawberries, beets, or foods containing red artificial dye and traces of blood can change the color of your breast milk to red/pink.

Orange/Yellow:
If you’ve recently given birth, your body produces thick, yellow breast milk called colostrum.

Green:
Green-colored foods can change the color of your breast milk to green.

Blue:
A bluish hue is often noticeable at the beginning of pumping or nursing. This milk (foremilk) is thinner and contains less fat and more electrolytes.

Purple:
Eating food dyes or naturally purple foods (like blackberries) and using topical gentian violet can be the cause of purple breast milk.

Brown:
This may be caused by residual blood in your breasts. Certain medications might also cause breastmilk to turn brown.

2. Since I'm breastfeeding, what are some ways my partner can also bond with the baby?

What are some ways my partner can also bond with the baby

One way for family members to strengthen their bond with the baby is to hold baby skin-to-skin. Once breastfeeding is going well, moms can choose to pump their milk and let their partner give the baby a bottle.

Holding your baby skin-to-skin can have many benefits for the person holding, as well as the baby. Practicing skin-to-skin releases hormones that relieve stress, and stabilize baby's temperature, breathing rate, heart rate, and blood sugar!

3. How can I get a better latch?

How to get a good latch

If you're having trouble getting a good latch, you can also try:⁠

- Moving to a quiet, calm place.⁠
- Holding your baby skin to skin. ⁠
- Letting your baby lead. Support your baby's neck, shoulders, and hips with your hands. Offer your breast, but let your baby find your nipple on their own.⁠

4. Can I take medication while breastfeeding?

Can I take medication while breastfeeding?

Whether you take medications for headaches, allergies, c-section recovery, or anything else, there are many medications that are compatible with breastfeeding.⁠

If you're breastfeeding, it's recommended to reach out to a doctor or pharmacist to double-check which medications are safe to take.

5. What Mommy Knows Best product should I try first?
