Should be fine: Vitamins are sometimes offered in specific situations to avoid issues created by individual needs of a baby.Any excess will end up in babies urine daily. Bring this up with your doc.

Vitamins in infant: It depends on your method of feeding? If you breast feed vitamin d 400 units should be used. If using one of the major brand formulas no supplemental vitamins are necessary.

Yes: It is safe. We know that babies need extra vit d . The multivitamin drops are typically vitamins a, c, d, e . It is also ok if you do not want to at this point. As long as baby is eating well...And if you are breastfeeding- as long as you are eating well- your child will get plenty of vitamins. The extra ones are helpful - not always mandatory. Your doctor has given you good advice.
