Breastfeeding/Low Dose Aspirin?
Hi, I have been prescribed 1 daily low dose aspirin (81mg) by my OB to take preconception/during pregnancy due to blood pressure issues and previous preeclampsia. My question is.....I am still nursing my son a couple of times a day (nap time/bedtime). I'm wondering about this low dose aspirin....is it safe to take while nursing? I keep reading conflcting advice. Thanks!

Low dose aspirin is perfectly fine. If you take over the recommended dose per day for 30+ days then it may affect you. I have done a lot of research on aspirin since I get headaches a lot with pregnancy and was concerned for my unborn fetus. However, I am only taking 2-4 when needed and not abusing or going over the directed amount of use.
You will be fine with 1 low dose a day.
