I'm considering giving dd a daily vitamin. She's almost two, and still breastfed. I know she gets nutrients from my milk, but I don't know if it's enough since she doesn't nurse very much any more. Her diet leaves quite a bit to be desired, too. I try to give her healthy foods, but she doesn't eat very much and I'm sure she's not getting everything she needs there.<br><br>
Another reason I'm thinking about this is that her pediatrician wants to do a blood test to check iron levels at her 2-year check-up, and I'd like to avoid that. If I could be sure that she's getting enough iron (like from a vitamin), I'd decline the test.<br><br>
Does anyone else give vitamins to their toddlers, and do you have any recommendations for good ones to try?
