There are various recommendations regarding age of child and controversy too.
It should not be given after consulting a pediatrician.
It can be stared after the age of 5 years.
This topic will help you out:

The dosage varies depending on your child's weight:

* Children weighing less than 20 pounds should get half of a baby aspirin tablet daily. Each whole tablet contains 80 milligrams. Give half of that, or 40 milligrams. Any brand is fine, including the flavored, chewable type.
* 20 to 40 pounds - Your child should get one baby aspirin per day, or 80 milligrams.
* More than 40 pounds but less than 80 pounds - Your child should get two baby aspirins, each 80 milligrams, daily for a total daily dose of 160 milligrams.
* 80 pounds or more - Your child should get one adult aspirin, 325 milligrams, per day. It's OK to crush the pill and mix it with food. Some brands are coated to make them easier to swallow.
However Majority is not in favour unless a clear cut indication is not present.
Watch for expiry date in your child shelf.

Don't start an aspirin regimen without consulting your DR first. You could have risk factors that you are not aware of. And please NEVER give a child aspirin with talking to their pediatrician first: http://www.reyessyndrome.org/

where do these people come from on this site??? Aspirin taken on a daily basis inhibits your body's ability to form clots. This is good if you have had a heart attack, are at risk for a heart attack or stroke, or your doctor thinks it is a good idea. There are also plenty of people who should NOT take aspirin every day. Although aspirin is sold over the counter, it can have a profound effect on your body and should not be taken daily unless your doctor tells you to. Treat daily aspirin as a prescription - you wouldn't take other prescritions without your doctor telling you too, right?

Please, do not listen to these people who are self-prescribing aspirin!! They may end up with stomach ulcers, as that is a common side effect of daily aspirin use!!

Unless you are in your 30`s I would worry about it much. Aspirin helps to thin out the blood making it easier to travel over calcium build up in the veins.. I started at the age of 36 only because I smoke a little. Other than that maybe early 40`s.

Hope this helps and take care...

One aspirin a day (baby aspirin) in your early 20's would be good to protect against colon cancer and cardiac problems.

The American Heart Association recommends aspirin use for patients who've had a myocardial infarction (heart attack), unstable angina, ischemic stroke (caused by blood clot) or transient ischemic attacks (TIAs or "little strokes"), if not contraindicated. This recommendation is based on sound evidence from clinical trials showing that aspirin helps prevent the recurrence of such events as heart attack, hospitalization for recurrent angina, second strokes, etc. (secondary prevention). Studies show aspirin also helps prevent these events from occurring in people at high risk (primary prevention).

You should not start aspirin therapy without first consulting your physician. The risks and benefits of aspirin therapy vary for each person.

If you’re taking aspirin and you must undergo even a simple surgical procedure or dental extraction, you must tell the surgeon or dentist your aspirin dosage.
