See below:: Breast milk or formula provides just about everything a baby needs for the first four to six months. The exception is vitamin d, which is recommended as a supplement for breastfed babies and babies who drink less than 32 ounces of formula per day. Supplements may be necessary if your baby was born prematurely, at a low birth weight, or small for gestational age. Ask your pediatrician.
