Prenatal (on the advice of MW to take them as long as still Bfing), fish oil (been shown to boost brain dev), Vit C (that's just for me), probiotic (helps with digestion for both of us), and a Cal/Mag (again just part of my usual suppl routine).

I take my prenatal, fish oil and probiotics. Probiotics are for me. They do not pass through breastmilk to the baby. I also take about 2000-4000 IU's vitamin D. I know that I am vitamin D deficient and get my levels monitored regularly. I take 4000 during the winter, and between 2-3000 during the spring, fall and summer.
