    My son drinks cows milk from a cup and I am purely a pacifier, but I need to start takimg aspirin today and I am unsure whether to stop cold turkey or cut down? Will stopping cold turkey have a really bad effect on him? He is 15 months old.

    Cold turkey wouldn't be that nice for you or LO, especially if he still feeds frequently. Cut back one feed every few days and watch for mastitis :)

    How much aspirin do you have to take? I think it may well be ok depending on the dosage.
    Please do check it out properly as you may not need to stop.
    If I get pregnant I may need to take a small dose each day and I researched ages ago & concluded it would be ok.

    75mg. I was given a lot of information today and I was basically told it's more than likely OK but my breasts are super sore so we're going to cut down rather than go cold turkey x
