Baby aspirin at the right dose is quite safe. the only problems with an overdose are bleeding and tummy problems which are rare. Watch out for Reyes syndrome.


Answer by  diane23 (1167)

No. Aspirin should not be given to any child--even teenagers. It can cause a dangerous condition known as Reye's syndrome which causes liver and brain damage or even be fatal.

Baby aspirin is safe for most children, as long as you follow the dosage instructions on the bottle. Avoid giving it to children younger than two years old, however.


Answer by  Fleetwood (56)

Baby aspirin for children is appropriate if your child falls within the range printed on the bottle. If your child has a fever or rash, check with your pediatrician first.

The safest thing you can give your child is baby/small child's Tylenol. Tylenol is the safest thing you can take, doctors even say that pregnant women can take it.
