Not at all.. in fact many women continue to take prenatals the whole time they nurse their little ones.

thanks rae.  i figured it was probably a good thing to keep taking them, just hadn't thought of it immediately after he was born.  kinda got out of the routine.

i think that's a splendid reason.  i often forgot to take them when i was pregnant, so i'm guessing i'll be even less inclined to take them now.  kinda wanna just use them up (don't want them to go to waste), because i doubt i'll be getting pregnant again.
