Took 2 Flintstone Vitamins for a week, is my baby ok?

My friend told me she would use Flintstone vitamins during her pregnancy cause those were the only ones she could stomach. I looked up how much folic acid I needed for a good prenatal and it said 800mg is best. So I took 2 of the Flintstone complete vitamins cause they were 400mg of folic acid per vitamin. After taking this for a week my morning sickness got worse, I was sick all day and I realized it began after taking them. I stopped taking them today but I am worried if I may have poisoned or hurt my baby.

here is the table of contents for the vitamins

Thank you! I am just going to stick to prenatal vitamins! I just thought I might have taken too much Iron cause even the bottle says it can give children iron poisoning if too many are taken. I haven't been this sick with my last two pregnancy. This one is throwing me for a loop with the constant nausea.

I, until my anemia worsened, was taking 2 Flintstones Gummies a day instead of normal prenatals.  That was at the recommendation of both my gp an OB/gyn. Morning sickness can fluctuate and often gets worse before it gets better. You haven't poisoned your baby with children's vitamins, silly. :) it's okay!

2 Flintstone vitamins are better than none. You did not "poison" your baby.. try taking prenatal gummies.
