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.
