Baby Apsirin is not for children for any age or any reason. It is only called baby aspirin because it is only 81 mg rather than the regular 325 mg. ONCE AGAIN, BABY ASPIRIN IS FOR ADULTS ONLY. It can cause great harm to children. Just letting people know because I'm having a hard time watching these little 4 & 5 year old suffer because their parents didn't know and gave it to them and causing them a terrible fight for their lifes. It can happen the first time or the 30th, who knows, just know it isn't safe for children. So, if you have been giving it to them, please stop, even if you think it's ok because you had it as a child or your other kids got it and was just fine and if you have never given it to your child, please don't chance their life. Unless a doctor ok's it, please don't do it. It is a blood thinner and children have thin blood as it is and need to have their blood checked often when it is prescribed by their doctor. NO ASPIRIN FOR KIDS!!!!!

Well common sense would tell someone its not baby aspirin when its not found with baby medicine.And the bottle doesn't call it baby aspirin it also says on it 12 years and younger consult doctor.

Yes, but some people don't read labels. I know parents that give children regular adult Tylenol and think it's ok if they just give one. Or half the dosage of an adult. People have lost all common since at this day in age. And what makes them think the aspirin is for kids is the fact that it is chewable ha ha, people don't read labels when they know everything

This is exactly what I come to Topix for...medical advice.

Read the label and follow directions.

Oh, the reason it is called baby aspirin is because it is made from baby sea otters. They just club those little suckers and grind them up into tablets. Better than letting them to drown or sweat to death because of global warming.

Not gonna say anything about baby carrots except for ... yumm!
