Any nursing mamas still taking your prenatals daily? i have been horrible taking mine. i might remember once or twice a week. i did so well while pregant, i only forgot a small handful of times. i dont know if it's because i'm just so busy with two little ones or what.

I do every once in a while. Doc said it is extremely important to get calcium as the baby will take it from your bones. Now I just need to remember. I am constantly forgetting my bcp. However, DH got a "V" and while we wait for a good test result we are using a third method

I'm pretty good at remembering my vitamins, since I have other medication that I have to take twice daily. I take a prenatal in the morning and I take calcium/magnesium in the evening.

It's important to avoid taking calcium and your prenatal at the same time; calcium and iron interfere with each other.

I take my prenatal every night before I go to bed. I've only forgotten it a handful of times since actually giving birth.

I'm pretty good about taking mine. I actually have an alarm on my phone to remind me to take my BCP, so I take my prenatal then too.

My kids take a gummy vitamin and I occasionally take two of theirs if I remember. Bad mommy, but Abri wants to see which princess I get

I'm still taking one daily, I take it at night right before bed, it's easier to remember

I've been taking them since I was pg with my oldest. The girls both take a gummy vitamin so I have a pill organizer and all three of our pills are in it. We all take ours in the morning. Forgot this morning though now that I think of it. Oops

I take mine daily. I'm actually better at taking them daily now than I was when I was pregnant. I can actually tolerate them.
