Yes: It's probably a good idea. We don't know, exactly, what the "rda" of omega-3 fatty acids should be for nursing moms or babies or children, but we do know that these are important especially for eye and brain development. Good natural sources of omega-3s are oily fish (sardines, mackerel) and flax seed.
