    Default Best multivitamin while breastfeeding?

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a good multi-vitamin while breastfeeding? My baby is almost 3 months old & I have continued taking Elevit but wondering if there is something better? With my first I didn't keep taking multivitamins while breastfeeding and I was constantly sick & run down. I feel a lot better second time around & have been eating loads of fresh fruit, veges, meat & eggs but I want to continue feeling good (& elevit is quite expensive)!

    I'm taking the InNatal with Iron by Bioceuticals, I prefer it to Elevit.

    But the tablets are big and can leave a foul taste in your mouth.

    Thanks where do you get this from, just from the chemist/health food store?

    Blackmores has a pregnancy and breastfeeding one. I look at it daily and forget to take it.

    I don't know if this helps but my friend gave me her Maori recipe for "Lactation Energy Bites". Not sure if it does anything or not but they are easy to make and yummy.

    Mix these ingredients and roll them into balls:

    1 cup oats
    2/3 cup coconut flakes
    1/3 cup honey
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 cup flaxseed
    1/2 cup chocolate chips

    You're welcome. My friend belongs to a large Maori family and this is what they eat during breastfeeding. And you're so right, they do make a good snack. I plan to make another batch tomorrow.

    Yes, from the chemist. They can only be sold by pharmacists.

    And a nice big bowl of porridge every day is great for supply
