Hi. Just wondering if people continued taking Elevit while breastfeeding? The box says that it is to be taken "before pregnancy, during conception, throughout pregnancy and into breastfeeding" - but, you know, it would, wouldn't it?
I took Elevit before and during pregnancy, and initially kept taking it after DS was born to finish off the box I had - but then I bought another box... and now DS is 6 months old! I'm now coming to the end of the box again, and wondering whether to buy more to last me until I finish breastfeeding (unsure when that will be at the moment). I've heard about people having side effects from Elevit (nausea, constipation, etc), but I've tolerated it well thankfully.
Has anyone had any advice from their Dr about whether or not they should continue to take Elevit or something similar while breastfeeding? I plan to make an appointment with my Dr soon, and I'll ask then, but just wondering what other people have done.
It's probably all about whether you have a good diet generally to get all those vitamins and minerals - and to tell you the truth, sometimes my diet isn't great, and I'm not sure I'm getting everything I should.
What have other people done?
Thanks in advance
