I have a multi-vitamin, biotin or B-complex, and even an Acai vitamin.  I try to take them.  Everyday.  They help me feel balanced.  But I lost my routine of taking vitamins.  I recently talked about my issues with routines, especially for myself.  But I find if I can get into a good system, my routines can stick.  But I'm not there right now. 

However, I do give my kid his vitamin everyday.  I never forget.  Except for this morning.  OOPS! 

He takes his vitamins every (almost) day and he doesn't mind the taste.  He's been taking the same vitamin since I brought him home from the hospital. 

As you can see the description indicates exclusively breastfed or partially breastfed babies and children are okay to take this vitamin.  J has stopped breastfeeding when he was 13 months old.

My kid is now 18 months old and I'm considering changing his vitamins considering he's going on 2 years old.  Wouldn't his little body require other nutrients?  This was a question I forgot to ask his doctor at his 18 month appt.  OOPS!

If my kid ate a well balanced diet, I wouldn't worry about the vitamins.  But he's a picky eater, especially with vegetables.  So I feel vitamins are important for him to take.

I've been doing a little research on what other mothers are using for their kids and I'm interested in what you give your kid(s).

Some alternative vitamins that I have heard about are:
Carlson's fish oil
Nordic Naturals fish oil
Nordic Berries
Animal Parade
Child Life Multi Vitamins and Minerals
Mightamins from Market America

So please share, what vitamins does your family use?
