Is it safe to take ibuprofen while breastfeeding
YES! Ibuprofen, while not recommended during pregnancy, is actually one of the safest pain relief medications you can take while nursing. It has a lactation risk category of L1, meaning that it has been taken by a large number of breastfeeding mothers without any observed increase in adverse effects in the infant. Doctors will often recommend ibuprofen to treat engorgement and other common breastfeeding pains.
