In brief: Yes

A general rule of thumb is that lotions and ointments applied externally are not known to enter the breastmilk in enough quantity to be problematic.
Studies of ingested aspirin show babies relative dose at 2.5-10% of moms.It would be worrisome if mom toke it orally at high doses, but not as a lotion. See:Medications & Mothers Milk, Hale,T.15th Ed 2012.

In brief: NO

Small amounts of Aspirin will be absorbed and can be concentrated in the breast milk.
In turn, this can lead to major problems for your baby.
