In brief: Infant

Fluid from infants nipples in the first weeks of life is likely to be "milk" or what is sometimes called witch's milk.
It is usually yellow in color not brown. This is due to hormonal changes after birth. It is often associated with some breast development. If the fluid is yellowish brown this is the likely explanation. If not have the baby seen by a pediatrician.
