Prenatal Vitamins - Page 2

post #21 of 31

After reading this thread, I decided I needed a good vitamin, not the big-box store brand.  I looked at Rainbow Light.  

 

What the main difference (well, besides the obvious!) between the one-a-day formula and the six-a-day formula?  

 

I ended up buying the 6 pill/day one, thinking that it made sense to spread out the nutrients all day for the best benefit, instead of one mega dose...but if I can get away with the 1pill/day, that'd be even better.   

 

I also bought some DHA, I totally forgot about it!  I took it last pregnancy.  Thanks for the reminder ladies!

i'm not a super-big believer in vitamins, but last time i took the rainbow light 6 a day (and only took a few occasionally) and am now taking the new chapter ones.  they're ok.  i can't tell a difference either way.

I just ordered some Rainbow Light since my midwife recommended those or New Chapter, and RL was A LOT cheaper... like 5 months of vitamins for $15 instead of one month for $30.  I got the one-a-day and figured I could chop it in half and take it twice a day that way.  The 6-a-day are taken in 2 or 3 at a time, so it seemed like a good option with barely touching the budget.  :)  I just hope they're not as nauseating smelling as some reviewers claim...

Jaysmylittlepumpkin-- I tried taking DHA at night and that was much better!  Thanks for the tip!

www.treehugger.com/files/2008/09/lead-in-vitamins.php is one of the links that lists Rainbow Light as one of the prenatals with the most lead.

I'm still trying to find a prenatal vitamin that doesn't make me gag.  I've tried chewable ones (where the flavor made me gag) and the Rainbow Light Prenatal One (where the size made me gag). Does anyone have a recommendation for a good prenatal that's fairly small in size?  I've been taking folic acid by itself, but I'd like to get all the other good stuff!

I take New Chapter or Rainbow Light when I take a prenatal vitamin. I feel better when I take the Rainbow Light vs. New Chapter.

Rainbow Light makes a 'mini sized' prenatal.

It is specifically the Rainbow Light One a Day

I only took them during my first pregnancy... And it was some brand the health clinic handed out for free:/

I'm taking Concept DHA (actually the generic), which is prescription.  It's only once a day and it's pretty small.  I like it but it is expensive, though being one/day maybe it evens out.
