infant supplements

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

With my first son, 7 years ago, I didn't do any supplements.

 

This time, in light of all of the recent research about Vitamin D, I'm thinking of supplementing that at least.  I went to Whole foods and saw a fish oil (DHA) supplement including vitamin D for babies, and wondered about this for a EBF baby...I know breastmilk contains DHA I think.

 

Any thoughts?

I don't think you're going to overdo it by giving it to him. I give my breastfed seven month old a fish oil with vitamin D. My plan is to give it daily, but honestly, it works out to more like 2-3 days a week.

it's good to be concerned. i gave my son the carlson drips. one drop on the nipple then suckle. vitamin d is important especially if you do not get outside often and during winter months.
