    Default Vitamins and Poop

    Hello ladies,

    This may be a gross topic, but:

    Our pedi just put our LO on vitamins with fluoride because we have well water, and no fluoride in our water. They smell TERRIBLE! Since then her poop has been VERY smelly. Could this be a side effect from the vitamins. I know that too much iron can cause them to be hard and discolored, but I have never heard about the smell. SHe is on solids three times a day, but has been for a while, so I don't think the solids are the answer.

    Also .... are these vitamins needed?? I hate to be giving her these synthesized vitamins if she does not need them.

    Thanks in advance!
    All I do is
    But I could not be happier!!

    Sure they could cause smelly poop. Don't ask how I know this. Ahem.
