Prenatal Vitamins Are Good for Breastfeeders

Some women stop taking their prenatal vitamins after giving birth, but if you are going to breastfeed, it's a good idea to keep taking them. (Hello sister! Are you reading this?)

My doctor and several lady friends all agree that we need a good vitamin to not just keep us healthy, but babies can take a lot out of you, quite literally.

Here's my problem, though: Remembering to take them!

I have a stable of pills I have to choke down during a day. My prenatal, my DHA, a couple of things for increasing milk production, birth control pills, and a little something for my thyroid.

I need one of those old lady pill dispensers that my friend Christie has -- she says it helps and with all the stuff us mommies have to remember, I think it's time I get one.

Do you still take your prenatals? How do you remember to take them?
