has anyone ever heard that you arn't supposed to take ibuprofen and nurse?  i have been nursing for 7 months and have thought the only thing i could take is tylenol.  i just looked it up and ibuprofen is ok to take.  am i crazy or does anyone else think you cant take it?

Since I couldn't take it during pregnancy, I guess I just assumed I couln't take it while breastfeeding either. . .

when i had surgery while dd was a newborn i was given vicodin and ibuprofen 600 (or 800) for pain and i nursed her. Obviously check with your doctor each time you use a new medicine to make sure it is ok.
