Acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin, etc.) is considered a potential source of disruption in the infant, so that, if you consider that his administration is necessary, should be done with caution, under close baby's control.

Usually recommended to avoid its use in nursing mothers, especially if the child is very young.

A single dose of the drug may not cause problems, but breastfeeding should be avoided during the two or three hours after administration of this drug to the mother.

Infrequently, higher doses have been associated with metabolic acidosis, thrombocytopenia, fever, anorexia, hemolysis and petechial rash in the infant.

Warning of the manufacturer:

Acetylsalicylic acid is excreted in breast milk, so it is not recommended use during lactation, because of the risk of occurrence of adverse effects in children.
