Non-Nursing Mothers

There are no medications that we are comfortable giving for "drying up" your milk.  Approximately 24-48 hours after delivery there will be breast engorgement, low grade temperature and breast pain.  You should take Tylenol and use ice packs as needed.  Wear a tight fitting bra (24 hours a day) for about two weeks after delivery to suppress any stimulation to the nipples.
