BREAST MILK: Your OB gives rx after delivery if you have no intention of breast feeding. Pumping breast for milk stimulates more milk production plus baby's feeding.To control breast milk after pumping is to limit the times of pumping to get milk or rest the breast. Side effect is engorgement and pain but will eventually dry up.
