If I supplement breast milk with formula at 9 mo, does my baby need vitamins?

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.

In brief: Formula supplements

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, .
