    My favorite tip is to give your LO vitamins in the bathtub so if you spill any or they spit it out you can just rinse them off and nothing gets on their clothes!

    How many of you use vitamins and what brand do you use? We don't use any, but I am interested in hearing more. Thanks!

    We use the same as pp. I agree that the smell is aweful. DD doesn't seem to mind it either, in fact she says "yum yum" after she takes it, LOL!

    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.

    The last time I had the prescription renewed they asked me if I wanted to flavor them. As the pharmacist next time you are there.

    We both have Kayla's! :-)

    DD takes a chewable vitamin now...I could never get her to take the Polyvisol even mixed in with other things!

    Oh and I remember getting an email from Target saying they can now flavor medicine so that's one place you could try.

    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?

    We use Haliborange. It is a vitamin from Seven Seas which is a British company. This was the same vitamin myself and my siblings grew up taking so I really trust it. Here is a link to it.

    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.

    Cadance will be 1 year old on the 27th of this month and I was wondering if I should start giving her vitamins? It wouldn't hurt would it?
