But why can't I take the vitamins?? I really liked my prenatals. I'm still breastfeeding but I've heard mixed reviews about taking them while bfing. What's up with this?

I started taking them when I was put on Birth control pills.  The doctor that put me on them told me it helps when your are on bc for some reason, that was years ago.

All I am saying is why cant you just take regular multi vitamins? Do you have something against regular adult vitamins?

I think the iron content can constipate babies maybe?

That's the only reason I can think of. It's encouraged to take lots of vitamins and cod liver oil ..

I'm taking a prenatal and I'm breastfeeding and pregnant

Nothing against normal multi-vitamins. It just that prenatals have some things higher in them that the normal multi-vitamin doesn't. I don't rember exactly because its been so long.

I was just saying no reason she couldn't take them. I take a multi every day. That's why I don't remember what the prenatals have in them.
