Webster is clearly not up on current breastfeeding terminology.
Foremilk is the first milk that the baby gets from the breast at each feeding. It has a high water content, and is pale in color. It is designed to quench the baby's thirst.
Fore"milk` (?), n. Physiol.
The milk secreted just before, or directly after, the birth of a child or of the young of an animal; colostrum.
