Is it ok to swallow baby aspirin instead of chewing it?

In brief: Yes

Yes. It works faster when chewed but, if you're not in a hurry, swallowing is fine.
(if you're taking it everyday, you have an Aspirin effect already so there's no hurry, but when people are having chest pain and not on Aspirin or their status isn't known, chewing gets it into their system faster).
