Improve nutrition during pregnancy

Improve nutrition during pregnancy

You should take good prenatal vitamin throughout your pregnancy. It should include 2,000 IU (International Units) of vitamin A and 4,000 IU of beta-carotene. This will not only boost your immune system, but will ensure protection to your baby as well. These doses are not harmful to your baby.

During your pregnancy you should take DHA 300 mg a day along with vitamin E as mixed tocopherols 400 IU a day.
Do not use either dl-alpha tocopherol from vitamin E or dl or d-alpha tocopherol acetate. The acetate form is next to worthless. It is poorly absorbed, is a poor antioxidant, and may not enter the brain.

After you baby is born, and at least three weeks before the first vaccination, supplement your child's diet with a multivitamin, which should include 1,000 IU of vitamin A and all of the other vitamins in an appropriate does. The vitamin should also contain zinc, selenium, and magnesium.
