Premama Prenatal Vitamins not Just for Pregnant Moms!10:17 AM
My son will turn 2 this June, and we are (incredibly) still nursing. Because of this, I struggle with taking the right vitamin for this time in my life that is, at the same time, easy to administer. I hate the horse pills that most prenatal vitamins resemble, so I was interested in giving Premama a try.
This drink mix dissolves in water, juice, or milk (I don't personally recommend the milk, however.) It contains all the stuff you should be getting as a pregnant mom, and likely still need while nursing: folic acid, iron, DHA, CoQ10 and calcium. Plus, it has a few other ingredients that pregnant moms might appreciate (like ginger for nausea relief.)
I tried my vitamins in both water and juice, and I really didn't care so much for the flavor -- only because I HATE ginger. I realize that it is necessary for the queasiness pregnant moms experience, but I could never choke down anything that tasted like ginger. I will say that I would have taken this as a pregnant mom in place of the overtly ginger-flavored OTC solutions, however. It's still less pungent than most, and you can add it to a stronger juice (like pomegranate) to mask much of the flavor.
If I had to pick between a pill or drink, I'll take Premama any day. For moms who are hoping to get pregnant, it might not be a bad idea to get a head start. I'll keep drinking it through the end of my nursing days with Marcus -- but I'll be very happy when they come out with the flavored versions they promise in the marketing literature.
