Do any of you ladies know at what age it is okay for a child to start taking a childrens multivitamin? My son is 2 months and will be 2 in October. Is that too early?

 Thats what I thought, I was just making sure. My sons at that age where its hard to get him to stop running around and acting crazy to eat and I want him to get everything he needs.

I give my son (2) the Enfamil vitamin drops in his food.  I'm a little scared he may choke on the vitamin gummies.

My dd is 3 and is the exact same way.  When she does want to eat it's just junk.  She takes a vitamin.

My kids are 6 and 3 and have been getting chewable vitamins since they could chew gummy bears (about 1&1/2yo). They both take multivitamin and vitamin c with echinacea every night. When they were younger, I only gave them half of the recommended dose.
