Greetings,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

How old is your baby?

Does your baby have any unusual symptom?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
She is 5 months . No unusual symptoms
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 11 months ago.

Thank you for the input.

Both Acetaminophen and Ooxycodone in Percocet are secreted in breast milk in low concentration.
We use acetaminophen in babies.
Acetaminophen is safe.
Oxycodone can make your baby sleepy.
If you do not need, it is better to avoid Percocet for pain relief.
As she did not have any such symptom, it did not affect her.
The effect usually lasts for a few hours.
You should not worry.
I hope this information will be helpful.

As I told you earlier that effect of Pecocet usually lasts for a few hours.
