Mum's breastmilk turns PINK and the reason why is pretty incredible

A mum in Australia was left panicking when she discovered her breastmilk had turned a different colour.

Rather than the white substance that she was used to, this mum noticed her milk had turned PINK.

Concerned, the nursing mum, who has not been named, took to Facebook page Breastfeeders in Australia to ask why it was such a colour.

While many people believed it could have been caused by blood or a blockage in the breast, there was a very simple but incredible explanation. 

According to The Sun, the worried mum remembered that she had been drinking beetroot juice. She had also eaten a sandwich containing the vegetable. 

And this was what had turned her milk pink. 

Absolutely fascinating!
