Vicodin in milk: Vicodin is secreted in breast milk. It contains Acetaminophen (tylenol) and hydrocodone. When breast feeding you should limit your dose to 30 mg a day or less and observe baby for signs of sedation. Some moms are fast metabolizers of vicodin and can secrete higher amounts than normal.

Maybe: You must realize that what ever the mother ingests there is some passing to the breastmilk. They would certainly be a small amount of opioid medication passed on to the baby.

Acetaminophen: The answer is really based on the amount of Acetaminophen in the vicodin. The first number 5, 7.5&10 is the hydrocodone in mg's.
