So at our 2 week apt. (she is now 5 weeks) my pedi told me he recommends all his BF babies take Vit D. To be fair we do live in Oregon, not much sun. So I didn't think anything of it and went and picked it up. He gave me two choices both go straight to baby (two choices were Vit. d or 3-in-one). The only one the pharm. had was a three-in-one Vitamin vs. strict Vitamin D . The 3 are D,C,A. Anyhow after I got it home I started thinking more and more about it. I never have given her the Vit drops yet.
From what I read/learned BreastMilk provides all the nutrition a baby needs. Also I thought that if there was a concern for vitamin deficiency then mom would take the extra vitamins (vs. straight to baby).
I guess my question is how many of you give/gave your new babies extra vitamins? Is this common to do or a misconception? (there is no reason my baby would need the D, just his typical recommendation).
