Baby Aspirin is Not For Babies?
Baby aspirin, or “low-dose” aspirin as the bottle now reads, was originally given to babies and children. It is 81mg, or less than a third of a typical 300mg dose. People used to give their kids aspirin until 1963, when Dr. Reye and his colleagues published an article detailing the problems of aspirin use in children and teenagers with viruses.
