    Default Tylenol PM?

    Hello - I am having trouble sleeping (mostly falling asleep)... does anyone know if Tylenol PM is ok while BFing? My son is currently 3 mos. old and sleeping approx 8 hours a night (but his mama isn't!).

    Thanks!

    Have you contacted and asked either your doc or your childs pediatritian?

    Also - have you noted the reasons you're having troubles? often times new mamas have issues that arise and it makes them tough for them to sleep... I'd be curious to get to the root of those as well.

    The ingredients of tylenol PM are Acetaminopehn and diphenhydramine. The dyphenhydramine is the main ingredient in Benadryl and it's an antihistamine, thats the part that makes you sleepy. Here's inforamtion on those types of meds.
