No. Aspirin is not recommended for breastfeeding mothers. Paracetamol or ibuprofen are safe alternatives for pain relief.

I am not a doctor or midwife or anything like that, but I would not recommend it. When you're breastfeeding, everything that you consume is passed to your child through your milk. I don't think that it is very wise to pass any medications down to your infant. To be on the safe side, contact your doctor or your baby's pediatrician.

Call a qualified medical person. If you don't have one, go to a free clinic or local health department.

I am not a physicain, but I am a pediatric nurse. I would not recommend Aspirin while you are nursing. Tylenol and Motrin are safe. In certain instances Aspirin is linked to Reye's Sydrome in children, and it is passed through breastmilk in small amounts. I recommend to my patients, just to be safe, take Tylenol or Motrin instead.

Husband doesn't think it is important to breastfeed our baby because he wasn't breastfed and he turned out fine How do you convince him that it is important?

I am sure you and your doctor have explained to him that breast feeding provides superior nutrition for his child and how breast milk also provides other health protection for hischild. Another thing you can talk to him about is all the things breast feeding does for you, his wife. While he will appreciate the protection breast feeding gives you from breast cancer and the mental health boost it will give you, there is another side benefit of breast feeding that will get his attention. What may most motivate him to get behind your decision to breast feed is that you can explain that breast feeding is one of the best ways for a new mother to regain her pre-pregnancy weight. Your husband is probably also concerned that by breast feeding your sex life will take a hiatus. He needs to be reassured that you and he will be as sexually active while you are breast feeding as you would be if you were bottle feeding. It is important that the both of you are working in concert as you raise and care for your child. If he does not support the decision to breast feed for an extended time, go ahead and tell him you do want to try it for just a little while. As he sees how important breast feeding is and how much good it will do for your family as a whole, I'm sure he will come around.
