  • I have to admit, when I was pregnant, I took them EVERY DAY. I think I missed them twice since the day I found out I was preggo. Now that I am breastfeeding, now I am lazy about it. I forget to take them all the time. But his a 6 months and as healthy as can be!!

  • I've never been good about taking vitamins, but I barely ever missed a day with my prenatals. My husband was really good about reminding me to take them, so that helped. I actually ended up taking them longer than I needed to b/c a noticed such a big difference in how much better I felt. Honestly I don't know how much of a difference it makes but I figured it couldn't hurt (I had twins so maybe that's why my body seemed to need them..).

  • I did. I took it at the same time every day. It was part of my morning schedule/routine. It became second nature.
