I wanted to know if you could take pepto bismol when breastfeeding
Hello,

What are you wanting to use it for?

Dr Abby
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Stomach is upset and hurting, basically to settle her stomach
It is generally not recommended because it contains salicylate. This does pass through the breast milk.

I would recommend trying Tums, which is considered safe.

I hope that she feels better,
