What kind of vitamin: You can't overdose of water soluble vitamins b and c. They leave the body in the urine. You can overdose a baby on too much vitamin a and d. Consult with your pediatrician for the amounts to give and the necessity to give. I don't think its necessary if the baby is formula fed.
