Can a baby use aspirin?

No

Aspirin
We have not used aspirin or aspirin like products in kids under age 16 for decades after it was tied to a rare cause of liver failure/death. The only exceptions are treating kids with arthritis, Kawasaki disease or rheumatic fever. The "baby aspirin" as a low dose has resurfaced & is used with adults to help prevent heart attacks.

Other factors such as family history of heart attacks and strokes, high blood pressure, obesity, etc. must weigh in so speak with your doctor
