A mum, who has asked to not be named, noticed something was different with her breast milk when her 16-month-old daughter began acting strangely.
While being fed , the tot started pulling at her mum’s nipple and saying “more, more! And as the milk came out,she was shocked to see it was bright pink.
Alarmed, the mum shared her concerns with other members in the closed Breastfeeders in Australia support group .They were initially concerned, asking if the milk may have been coloured due to blood – a blockage or other damage to the mum’s breast.
Turned there was a simple and reassuring explanation.
The mum revealed over the course of the day, she’d drank fresh beetroot juice, had a salad sandwich with beetroot.
Not only did it effect the mum’s breast milk, but it also caused her and her daughter’s urine to go pink too.
Despite the alarming colour, it was still safe for her baby, and confirmed the milk on this occasion tasted very sweet.
