I wasn't going to post anything on JM pregnancy related, but I need the help.
I just found of I am pregnant. I have Lupus Anticoagulant and history of recurrent pregnancy loss. My magic solution for my pregnancy with Zoe was low dose aspirin and progesterone. Well, I am still nursing Zoe, or was until I cut her off cold turkey Saturday(what a nightmare). You aren't supposed to take aspirin while nursing.
I am wondering since I take it in the morning if it would be okay? Since she won't nurse during the day. I read it is okay, but then read it isn't. But the isn't is those Moms that refuse to take anything while they pregnant. I just don't know. I hate cutting DD off like this, I may despise nursing right now, but I am still determined to do right by her.
So the question-would it be okay to still night nurse if taking the low dose aspirin in the morning?
Pharmacist here. Definitely discuss with your doctor, but low dose aspirin while breastfeeding is not an absolute no-no if the benefits outweigh the risks. It's recommended to wait 1-2 hours after taking it before you breastfeed. Most of the problems with it are in women taking regular or high-dose aspirin. Check out LactMed: LactMed Search
"Probably safe. (Hazardous in viral syndromes). Human studies in breastfeeding women are not available or if available demonstrate only minimal to no adverse effects. Aspirin is rapidly metabolized to salicylic acid. However, the acetylated form of aspirin does rapidly chelate with platelets prior to its metabolism. Aspirin is certainly implicated in Reye syndrome, but most often in older children (not infants) who have a viral illness such as flu or chickenpox. Even when present at small plasma levels in these children, it was implicated in Reye syndrome. However, the amount in breastmilk in incredibly low even following large therapeutic doses. The amount in milk following low (82mg) doses is probably infinitesimally low. In these cases the risk to the infant is probably remote. Never use these products if the infant has a viral syndrome. The urgent need for low-dose aspirin in a breastfeeding mother would require a major discussion of the risk vs. benefit."
