In brief: No
Vitamin d is perhaps the only supplement a 9 mo old might need as we have learned that most people are really vitamin d deficient.
If your child is eating well (solids) and is on breast milk and formula, then other vitamins really are not necessary.

Since breast milk levels of a, d, & c vitamins are lower than a baby's daily requirements, daily supplements of the same vitamins are helpful.
How much formula your baby receives per day will dictate whether you may continue with the vitamin supplements or not, .
