  • I took them daily. They are very important to your health and your baby's growth. I also took them while breastfeeding.

  • I took them pretty much every day.

    I've continued taking a multivitamin after I had my daughter, even though I'm not breastfeeding.

  • Long story, but I was unable to take them. My doctor had me take Flinstones (the ones with 100% of your daily folic acid). I took them daily and I still do!

  • I did the same thing with the Flinstones and I also took a folic acid pill once a day...I had problems with all the Iron that was in the pills.

  • defintely daily. If you don't, baby is going to take what it needs from you, and when you run out of those stores, it can be very hard on your body!

  • I took mine every day. The regular ones made me sick so I switched to Centrum Children's Chewable - which was nearly identical - with my doctor's approval.
