I just finished pumping tonight and noticed that my milk was pink. The research I have done on this says that it is most likely caused by blood from cracked nipples during the postpartum period, however my son is 7 1/2 month old. He is teething and he bit me this morning - could that be causing the pink milk? Is it still safe to feed him and do I need to do anything about it, I don't really see any damage to the nipple but I am concerned that maybe there is some internal damage or something. It freaked me out a little bit tonight, has that ever happened to anyone else? Did you keep the milk or pitch it?
