None: You can breast feed with Aspirin in take. If it is of concern use tylenol (acetaminophen) or motrin.
Dr. Alfredo Garcia
Pediatrics 57 years experience
Aspirin & lactation: If low-dose Aspirin is taken, avoid breastfeeding for 1 to 2 hours after a dose to minimize antiplatelet effects in the infant (bleeding). Because of a single case report of metabolic acidosis, the american academy of pediatrics characterizes Aspirin as a drug that has been "associated with significant effects on some nursing infants and should be given to nursing mothers with caution.
