If baby is breast fed, does baby need additional vitamins i.e. Vitamin D and others ? Saw this.

I was told to increase MY intake (for both Vitamin D and iron and other vitamins) - ie continue on the prenatal vitamin.

I was advised by our pediatrician (and the nurses at the hospital when DS was born) to supplement with Vitamin D drops.

We've never given our kids added vitamins till they can chew gummy vitamins and both kids nursed 2 years with no problem

Whether breastfeeding or not, I believe our pediatrician prescribed vitamins from the start w/ Tristen. From what I remember.

I think that the recommendation for Vitamin D may be relatively new.
