  • No because if your formula feed you will get the same nutrients that you get from trivisol already in formula. I breastfed my daughter and she was on trivisol for the first month but I dont see it as necessary.

  • No. They should be getting all they need from breastmilk or formula.

  • Nope, they are necessary unless your doctor specifically tells you to use them.

  • Unless your doctor recommends it because your baby for some reason needs the extra nutrients, no you don't need to add it to your formula. The formula should have all the nutrients your baby needs (again, unless your doctor recommends it).
