Hi ladies. Do those of you who nurse toddlers take prenatal vitamins PLUS give your little one a multivitamin on top of that? My DD's pediatrician asks me every time we are in if she gets a multivitamin, and he is aware that we still nurse. DD will be 2 yr 6 mo in a few days.
I finally just started giving her a Flinstones Toddler multi vitamin a couple weeks ago. The dose is 2 gummies per day. When we started, for a couple days after she was really out of sorts- sleeping was off, eating habits went screwy, and her general attitude was weird too. The only thing I could think of was that we had started giving her those vitamins... Could it have something to do with both of us taking a multivitamin, or do you think maybe this was just a coincidence? Is it possible she was getting too much of a certain vitamin, like an over dose kind of? Since I noticed that, I have been rotating what days we get vitamins- on days that I give her one, I don't take one and vice versa.
Any logic to this, or is it just my paranoia?
