Hi everyone,

I wasnt sure if this was the best folder to post my question or not. I know some of us have taken childrens chewable vitamins when pregnant. I was told to try this before they diagnosed me with HG when prego with Madison. Does anyone remember what the dosage is? Is it 1 or 2 vitamins daily???

I was told by my doctor and my home care nurse to try 1 or 2 childrens chewable vitamins. At this point, I have yet to try them, because even with the Zofran microinfusion pump, I'm still having nausea/vomiting and have to be extremely careful of what I eat/drink. So, in regards to your question, I think the answer would be that you can safely take 2 childrens vitamins per day. Hope this info helps.

Hmmmm...... my Peri said that there is only certain baby vitamins you can take two of, since iron poisoning is an issue.

Maybe find out what the max on that is, and then ensure that you are not exceeding that with two.

I THINK i remeber her saying that Flintstones have a higher iron, and not to take two, but I could be wrong.

Just check first.
