  • the only vitamin a baby could possibly need would be Vit B. Even formula feed babies need it.

  • My son's doctor gave him something prescription because we were using bottled water to mix formula but I can't remember what that was- it's been 10 years.

  • i was told to give my son some kind of vitamin supplement in a liquid form, it was something about preventing bowed legs, not sure why i had to but the doc said it would help so i did. Hes a normal little 2 year old now ^__-
    Most formula or breast milk (if the mom takes her prenatals) should be all the vitamins the baby would need unless its got some kind of medical problem.

  • I think you should call the doctor and ask why McKenzie has to take vitamins.

  • Both my kids started multivitamin/fluoride at six months. But none before that. And I requested it.
