A six months old baby gets everything he needs from bm. Don't be in a hurry to supplement. Research it first.<br><br><br>
Here is a link to <a href="http://www.thedoctorwithin.com/index_fr.html?content=articles/index.html" target="_blank"><b>Vitamines</b></a> you might find interesting.<br><br>
Of course oils are something more natural.<br><br>
But if it contains no mercury et al, it is because it has been removed. Can they really get it all out??<br><br>
That's the question.
I don't know about when to supplement infants, but Mercola has tested fish oils and recommends Carlson's as being the purest. He also sells it for less than I can find it anywhere else. Here's a link to the info:<br><a href="http://www.mercola.com/forms/carlsons.htm" target="_blank">http://www.mercola.com/forms/carlsons.htm</a><br><br>
I'd also search his site for the question of when to begin with children.
I believe both Carlson's & Nordic are pharmaceutical grade oils. This is a cool little explanation about that:<br><a href="http://experts.about.com/q/2456/3374783.htm" target="_blank">http://experts.about.com/q/2456/3374783.htm</a>
My dd is 10 mos. old and has been taking CLO to help prevent ear infections. So far it's working great!! SHe had 5 bad ones and now has had one very mild one (dx today). I give her the contents of one tablet every other day.<br><br>
I agree with the others though, if the baby is getting breastmilk there's probably not a need for CLO, unless you have chronic ear infections going on.<br><br>

Could you please post what vaccines she's had? I am just curious. Thanks,
