Are most moms giving their 1 year olds vitamin drops?

I'm still breastfeeding my 13 month old, I'm on daily vitamins, and we're on a vegetarian diet rich with fruits and veggies. Our doctor suggests vitamins daily for iron and vitamin D in particular. Are other moms also giving vitamins?

  • Yes, my daughter of 6 months is on Poly-vi-Sol for iron intake. Since I do breastfeed, she still needs those vitamins. Continue to take your and your babies too. All the foods baby is eating now does not have enought of the iron they need. When babies are on formula, it already has the added iron and others...

  • NO... My son took them for about the first 6 to 8 weeks but not now... He's 15 months and beautifully healthy!
