OK so i breast feed and pump when needed. well i noticed that my milk when a little was left over in the bottle had pink particales and my breast pad had spotted pink places in it when it sat in garbage over night. Has this happened to anyone else? What does it mean?

Blood? Sometimes you can bleed a little.

Is it pink when it comes out or is it normal colors THEN turns pink after time.... if it turns pink then it is NOT blood and you NEED TO GET CHECKED IMMEDIATELY, it can be a life threating infection to you and your baby!!!!! I just saw this same incident on TV and the mother and baby nearly died because the infection got into her blood, i forgot the name its very long but it can be found with a culture of your breast milk, its also kind of rare so a lot of doctors dont know about it please findone who doeas ASAP!!!!!!!

If your milk turns pink it could be a caused by a bacterial disease called "Serretia marcesens", and if untreated it can be fatal. But Strong antibiotics should take care of it. I just saw a special on it on a TV program called Mystery Diagnosis, that airs on the discovery channel. Go to your doctor and have them test your milk (It's called culturing your milk). Chances are that the baby could be suffering from it too if it has been drinking your milk. So make sure that you both are tested.
