Vitamins Supplements for Babies?
As mamas, we only want the best for our babies. As mamas, we appreciate the respectful sharing of other mamas' thoughts and opinions. Thank you Sharon for emailing:
I am curious about whether other moms have used vitamin supplements for their breastfed babies. I have a two-month old and was given vitamins by her doctor at her two-week check-up. I have heard the idea before that breastfed babies don't get enough vitamin D; when my son was breastfed, but didn't have the vitamins pushed on me. I haven't given them to her as I hate the thought of adding anything to her perfect body! I still take my prenatals and she breastfeeds exclusively. How necessary are these to you? Did you use them?
