My baby is 9mnths and isn't focused on eating. I breastfeed so I used to give her polyvitamins before, should I do that now to make sure she is getting nutrition?

In brief: Keep breastfeeding..

Keep breastfeeding, and supplement with soft foods for your baby as your pediatrician recommends.
Vitamin drops are safe when used as directed. Check with your pediatrician about how your baby is doing in terms of growth and development. And follow their recommendations.

In brief: Breastfeeding normal

Breast feeding at 9 mo is normal! and many breastfeeding babies prefer that over food.
Do try baby food and table food. I do recommend a multivamin or at least vitamin d and iron. For your baby.
