  • I agree with anon....i would talk to a doctor about it before you start. If you talk to the doctor about giving your child vitamins they might tell you what a good one would be to give them.

  • started my older 2 around 3, but my youngest has always been on a vitamin - but its prescribed by her neurologist to slow her seizures and work with her anticonvulsants.
