I had to take on for a migraine. Tylenol wasn't working. Is it safe to feed my baby still?

I dont know what that is but if you call your babys pedi they should have a book and they can look it up for you and tell you if it is safe

you should've taken something else, thats aspirin I believe and aspirin is L3, safe but discouraged

Aspirin use is discouraged in children and nursing mothers due to the risk of Reye's syndrome and internal bleeding.

theres many other safe things

go to the site Tabi posted. After 7 hours you *should* be fine. Most analgesics wear off within 4-6 hours. Check kellymom.com or Dr. Hale's site.

At this point, you should be fine. But Excedrin Tension in the future. Works fast and is not a problem; no aspirin.

Oh, yeah. Anything non-aspirin, because of the Reye's syndrome risk.
