eric takes a gummy one...can't think of what it's called right now. he loves them though and always wants more...ha ha. he loves medicine of any kind and when he's sick and being difficult some times that's the bribe, sadly enough...lol. never thought bribing my child with medicine would work--don't they usually go running??? ha ha
How do you get them flavored? Will the pharmacy do that? We just got Kayla some with a prescription and they smell horrible and are this terrible yellow/brown color. I don't understand why the can make Tylenol and Motrin fruity flavored, but these vitamins are horrible. I can't imagine how she doesn't throw it back up, but so far she opens wide for it. Probably similar to what the PPs said their LOs are taking.
we use the poly-vi-sol stuff. I would love to give him a chewable or a gummy, but they all say they are only for kids 2 or 3 and up. I figured it was probably just due to a choking hazard or something, but I didn't want to take a chance in case it was some ingredient they shouldn't have or something. Does anyone know about that? CAN I give him another type of vitamin?
DD takes the chewable version of Poly-vi-sol. At her 15 month appt her pedi asked if I wanted the chewable version since she has so many teeth. I would ask your pedi about it. DD LOVES them. She cries when I tell her she can only have one.
