Background: Although the many factors that affect the initiation of lactation have been identified, the impact of medications on lactogenesis remains largely unknown. Aim: To explore the impact of medications used during pregnancy on time to lactogenesis after parturition. Method: Data were collected prospectively from women admitted to a metropolitan Sydney hospital for parturition. Information was obtained via a short interview with each patient, as well as from medical notes, drug charts and infant feeding charts.
