Breastmilk Question

I work full time, so I pump my milk for my daughter. Today, while I was pumping, I noticed that the milk from my left br___t was a slightly different color than the milk from my right br___t. The left side's milk was slightly green...It smelled fine, and my daughter doesn't seem to have any problems with it, but it just seemed so strange. What's going on??

I know certain foods can alter the color of your milk, but it is weird that only the milk of one b___st is greenish. Not sure why one b___st but not the other.

It's normal for b___stmilk to be slightly green...it can even smell differently, and still be good - for example, if you've recently eaten eggs, your milk might smell like eggs. Don't worry, though - it's still good and safe to give the baby.

Jaime is right, completely normal, sometimes it can even take on a bluish tint..
