  • I was also told to use the Flinstones vitamins with my first child. She didnt let me quite swallow the pill down. Just warning you though, The flinstones dont taste much better!

  • No ya not missing out on anything! They always recommend flinstone when women can't take prenatal vitamins! As long as ya eating well then ya making up for alla those extra vitmains.If you don't want the vitamins try a different flavor or something you can eat or drink thats full of iron a coulple times a day to give ya body and baby whatever it needs!
