In brief: Yes

Yes this can be very helpful for developing baby particularly dha for brain and eye development.
Look for a high quality source that screens for heavy metals (mercury) and pcbs which are other pollutants. Krill oil, which is lower down on the food chain is a great option as those toxins bioaccumulate.
