Does Ibuprofen really dry your milk up?

Then BINGO why my supply is lacking..
I was told to take that in the hospital, after DS, but looking back, I took tylenol w/ DD-

What can I take for headaches/backaches that's safe and won't affect my supply?

I never heard that about motrin and I took it a few times....but you could try tylenol if you want to be on the safe side.
But ultimately the best thing to do to increase supply is nurse nurse nurse

*checks boobs* nope, still plenty of milk there, and I took a lot of ibuprofen at the hospital, and occasionally since--in fact, I'm on some right now for my cold.

.. I just read on another thread (how to dry up milk) if you take it, your supply will drop.

Anyone else know? .. is tylenol ok to take instead?

Nope, motrin won't do a darn thing to your milk supply. Pump after you feed, the kiddo.

UM..if ibuprofen caused a supply issue I'd be dried up. I live on it! Ok, not really, but I do take quite a bit of it sometimes...
