Tylenol

I have a splitting headache and I know taking Tylenol is okay but I just gave my son Tylenol for teething. Will my taking Tylenol be a bad idea?

Re: Tylenol

  • They gave me Tylenol after my c/s knowing I was bf, so it must be considered ok.

    How old is LO? My DS was OK'ed to take it when he was 4 months old.

  • My issue is, will he get Tylenol through breastfeeding? He's had a dose himself for teething. I didn't want to 'overdose' him if he could get more Tylenol though breastmilk. If that makes any sense...?

  • don't be worried- whatever might pass into your milk would be an absolutely miniscule amount. certainly not near enough to risk your LO getting too much.
