Your newborn's first appointment with a pediatrician is usually scheduled 3-5 days after birth. Make sure you're prepared for the visit. Bring your insurance card, any paperwork from the hospital like baby's discharge wait, and any records of complications, etc. with your pregnancy.

Having a child on the autism spectrum poses all kinds of unique challenges that can sometimes be very difficult. The sensory issues that often accompany spectrum disorders can mean that even everyday things like taking vitamins may be a serious struggle.

After experimenting with many different brands, styles, and flavors, I have found what does and doesn't work for various sensory issues that he has. I've created this site to share our experiences in the hopes that it might help other parents with kids on the spectrum to find a vitamin their child will take.
