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

What are you wanting to use it for?

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,
