do you give your SN child vitamins?

I am doing targeted nutrition intervention with Kaiden and I started with the regular over the counter supplements, pill form, crushed. He does well on them but his poop got really soft and we were constantly having diaper blowouts. Especially bc he poops while bouncing in the excersaucer and that just makes the mess worse!!

We were running out of the calcium+magnesium+D3+zinc and the Vitamin B complex so I bought the Dr. Christopher's vitamins for children instead and OMG, within 48 hours we have normal poop!!!! This is a whole-foods vitamin.

I know, I get way too excited over poop! but it sure makes my life a whole lot easier!!

Just wanted to put that out there in case anybody else is doing something similar and having the diaper blowouts.

I'm so glad you found one that works! I've got the gummy bear vitamins that I give the boys, but I'm not very consistent about it.
