Pregnancy Warnings of tylenol-acetaminophen

Pregnant women are advised not to take medicines if possible, but acetaminophen is recommended as the best option if painkillers are needed to reduce a fever, because there is little evidence it can cause harm to the baby.

The researchers found acetaminophen was linked to childhood asthma, both in cases when it had been taken by the pregnant woman and by the young baby (less than six months old). The study estimated that infant exposure to acetaminophen increased the asthma risk by 29% and exposure in pregnancy led to a 13% increase; though this estimate was borderline significant.
