    Thanks!

    So you're using a liquid vitamin instead of a chewable - is that because of taste and if so, what brands of chewables did you try? I've ordered a multivit and calcium citrate supplement from Unjury and both are chewable. I'd rather stick with my current vitamin, but it's a horse pill and will not be doable post op.

    That said, my husband bought me a nutri-bullet for Christmas. It's still in the box. Instead, we use our Omega juicer to get in my veggies and fruit. I had a problem finding a vitamin that didn't make me puke. Well, we finally found a liquid one but it tasted so horrific I couldn't take it without gagging. My husband had the idea of using the juicer we already had to make me fresh juice and put the vitamin in it so I wouldn't taste it. It worked. He juices every morning for me. One large fuji apple, one carrot, and one kale leaf mixed with the vitamin and I'm good to go. YUM!

    I have the nutribullet, and i think it would be more help to you more in the long run. You could make any and its really good for shakes. I even use it just to mix the protein and water lol. It has a bigger motor, i think the baby bullet would be more work to do! My nut told me during purreed stage to just go out and buy baby food!

    I first tried bariatric Advantage chewables recommended by my surgeon. At first they made me nauseated - severely. So, I started taking a zofran before the vitamin. Nope, nausea kept getting worse until finally I'd take them after taking zofran and would puke in less than 5 minutes. It was awful.
    So, my husband went on a mission to find an equivalent in liquid form that wouldn't make me puke. Side note-vitamins have always made me nauseated but the vomiting is new. I don't remember what all we tried. Finally, he found "Alive". It's a liquid, vegetable based vit. But it tastes horrific. I'd literally have to mentally prepare myself to take it, immediately rinse out my mouth, and then get a cold rag for my face bc the niacin flush was so bad. That's when he came up with the juicing idea and it's been great ever since. I have such a great, supportive hubby.



    You donít have to be perfect. You just need to be better.

    I have personal experience with the Nutribullet and it definitely met my expectations in terms of blending power and consistency. It's versatile and can handle a variety of foods beyond just purees. I haven't used the Baby Bullet. Its portion-sized containers do sound super convenient, especially for post-op and traveling. However, looking at the feedback below, it seems many others lean towards the Nutribullet. So my advice is go with the majority vote and get the Nutribullet.
