    Default Question about Multivitamin

    I have a question about multivitamins and assumed this is the most appropriate section to post it in. Currently I take a regular Prenatal vitamin from Target, but I have been hearing that vitamins from Wal-mart, Target, etc are not really any good. I just wanted some opinions on what is best while breastfeeding. My LO is 4 months old now and I want to make sure I am taking care of myself, especially since I have started exercising again. Thanks in advance for the advice.

    I haven't heard that claim, but that's not to say it's not being said, or not vaild.
    Who/where have you heard that from? (I question everyones motive )

    I have essentially heard from every doc I've seen (for care of myself) that generics are just as good as name brands.

    I take the Kroger generic and did all throughout pregnancy. Doc didn't have any problems with it and DD turned out great.

    My doc had told me sort of the same thing when I was pregnant.

    She had said that the vitamin "industry" is not regulated, and no one is accountable for the quality of vitamins. I was using the Target brand pre-natal at the beginning of my pregnancy, but after I heard that I was a little spooked and switched to Nature Made.

    Who knows if it is true or not. She just told me to get one of the more well-known or expensive brands (go figure) because you are more likely to get better quality. (????)
