Do I have to feed my baby formula to make sure he is getting the right vitamins?
7 doctor answers • 9 doctors weighed in
Specializes in General Practice
Yes: Breastmilk is a near perfect food for baby. The only thing it's missing is vitamin d, so breast fed babies should get 400 iu of vitamin d a day (1 ml of poly-vi-sol or d-vi-sol). As long as mom is eating a healthful diet and your pediatrician thinks your baby is growing well, you shouldn't have to supplement with formula. Around 4-6 months start giving your baby rice cereal for extra iron.

How do I choose a pre-natal vitamin?

The one you like: There are hundreds of brands of prenatal vitamins. My suggestion to patients is to try a few and find one you like. The best vitamin is the one you will actually take. All contain Folic Acid which is important. Some contain stool softeners which is helpful for pregnancy constipation. Some contain DHA so you do not have to take a separate pill.

Is it safe to take vitamin C while pregnant?

A Verified Doctoranswered
Yes: In recommended standard doses, yes. You probably already have enough in your prenatal vitamin. Taking "more" vitamins and minerals in the form of supplements does not improve health.
