is tempra (acetaminophen) paint on the baby's skin safe?

Yes: Tempera paint is safe to use on skin and has been widely used as a body paint. However, it flakes away from the skin very quickly after it dries, so it is not suitable for long-term use.

NO: No, sorry, but the triptans (migraine medicines) are not good for your baby and will pass through to the baby in your breast milk.
