  • Yes, we try. She started half a Flintstone on her second birthday when the doctor said she could have them, on her 3rd or 4th birthday, she moved up to a whole one. We try to remember them every day, but since we aren't giving heart meds daily, we hardly remember to go to the medicine cabinet every night anymore. She gets them about 3 or 4 times a week. Better than nothing I guess.

  • Yep all 3 of mine have their own jars of vitamins cause heaven forbid if they had to (gasp) share a bottle.

  • No. They eat a well balanced diet with lots of fruits & vegetables. There is no need for a multivitamin.
