    Default Tylenol

    Ive got a question about tylenol.

    I know it says it is safe but how much is actually safe are they talking one regular strength tab? I get really bad headaches and normally two extra strength tylenol works but since i got pregnant, and now that im breastfeeding i dropped it down to one regular strength and though it doesnt normally work it takes the edge off the headache so i can tolerate it, but the last two days ive had a bad one and taking one isnt working. I dont want to take extra strength because im worried more will go to my lo.

    Does anyone know the exact safe amount of tylenol for breastfeeding?? My daughter is 14 weeks old now if it makes any difference to the amount i can take
    My pride and joy is my family, my finace, my 9 year old son Jonathan Bengamin and my 4 month old daughter Grace Abigail, they are the greatest things to ever happen to me

    Your best bet is to call your doc and/or your childs doctor and get their take on it.
