This medicine is to be used only during the first week of breastfeeding.
Oxytocin will not make your breasts produce more milk, but will help stimulate the "let-down reflex," which releases the milk from the breasts. Call your doctor if you think the medicine is not causing your breasts to release milk.
This medicine may cause your breasts to leak milk while you are not nursing. You may wear absorbent nursing pads to keep the milk from staining your clothing. These pads are available at grocery and drug stores.
