Thread: pre-natal vitamins a year later?

  1. #1

    Default pre-natal vitamins a year later?

    So my pediatrician says as long as I'm nursing, I should continue taking my pre-natal vitamins. Well my insurance company doesn't cover them, and I'm wondering at this point, does it really matter? I could just get a generic brand of OTC women's vitamins, right? Is anyone still taking their pre-natal vitamins? I only want what's best for my little one, so if pre-natals are best, of course, I'll keep shelling out the cash!

    You can get OTC, generic prenatals in the supermarket, and they don't cost any more than OTC women's vitamins. At 1 year, I am sure you could switch to OTC women's vitamins without having to worry, especially if you add in a bit of extra calcium and make sure to eat some iron-rich foods every week.

    I still take prenatals, I just pick up whatever is on sale at the grocery store or drug store when I run out.
