In brief: Very difficult
There are very few signs for mild vitamin deficiencies.
Severe vitamin deficiencies are rare in babies in the u. S. Except in the most impoverished areas and under extreme conditions.

In brief: Good nutrition
If your baby is growing well, taking in the proper amount of breast milk or formula, and is developing normally, he or she is very likely getting the proper vitamins.
Exclusively breastfed babies may need vitamin d supplements, ask you pediatrician.

In brief: Vitamin D
Babies used to get plenty of vitamin d from the sun; now most of their day is spent indoors.
Most healthy babies who are breastfed or partly breastfed should get a vitamin d supplement. Breast milk has all the other vitamins -- and more! formula has vitamins, including d, added in. Once solids are started, choose a variety of fruits and veggies. Iron isn't a vitamin, but do choose iron-rich foods.

In brief: Maybe add vitamin D
The general recommendation is that babies who are mostly breastfed, or completely breastfed, should be given extra vitamin d.
It is believed that breastmilk alone may not provide enough vitamin d. Trivisol or polyvisol drops can be used (they also contain some other vitamins). Baby formula and toddler formula have the vitamins already added in.
