In brief: You should for You

The breast will extract most of the nutrients baby needs for growth & development from your body.
These will be depleted from your bones & stores unless you take a supplement to replenish what is removed. A supplement can make the chance baby misses something less likely & prevent your body from some of the long term consequences that would otherwise happen. (osteoporosis & others).
