February: Take Your Vitamins

One of my focus areas for February from the 2011 List will be taking my vitamins. I know this really shouldn't be that difficult, but for some reason it's a serious struggle for me to remember to take pills. I did pretty well with my prenatal, but it was only one pill so I just kept the jar by my bed. Now, in addition to my prenatal (multi), I also take a probiotic (that's refrigerated), 3 calcium supplements (due to my dairy free diet), and 3 fish oil capsules (that are supposed to be taken throughout the day). So, keeping them by my bedside is no longer an option.

If I can remember to take the majority in the morning, it's a good day. Remembering to take the remainder throughout the day is practically unheard of!

Ideas? How do you remember to take your vitamins?

Could be annoying, but you could set the alarm on your phone to go off 3 times a day. Maybe some nice music at a low volume so it won't wake baby. That is if you have a fancy phone capable of such a thing. =) After awhile, you may just get into the habit and not have to rely on the phone anymore.

I never remember to take them either. I bought some vitamins a couple weeks ago, took them for 3 days and that was it. Plus, I hate how they're giant horsepills.

I've tried the alarm thing before with both Lana's vitamin d and my own bc with incredibly low levels of success. However we also have to give the babe meds twice a day and never forget. Guess it's just a matter of priorities? Plus her med times are attached to her wake up and bedtime routines. Maybe that's the trick...?
