Just as you were taking a regular dose of prenatal vitamins during, and possibly before your pregnancy, you should continue taking them while you nurse. If you are on prescription prenatal vitamins your healthcare provider can extend the prescription for up to a year after your child is born if you make them aware that you are nursing. If you are using over the counter vitamins, this will work too. If you wish to breastfeed past one year and your prescription runs out, the over-the-counter vitamins are a great substitute. Your post-pregnancy diet may be low in certain nutrients and these vitamins can fortify your milk to be at its best quality while making sure to take care of you at the same time.
