Is anyone giving your baby vitamins? Every time I try Wes spits them out, plus his breath stinks the rest of the day. I have been trying here and there to give them to him but have to admit I haven't been very consistent.
When I remember I just give him a D vitamin which doesn't stink at all.
I'm going to ask Caden's pedi about it at our next visit. I feel like he should be getting all the nutrients and vitamins he needs from breast milk? I don't want to overload him with anything.
I feel much the same about getting everything they need from breastmilk. I know the iron stores start to deplete after 6 months, but for now the nutrients should be covered. So I don't feel too badly about "forgetting" to give W his vitamins daily.
The concern is for vitamin D. Many moms have low vitamin D and hence then do not have enough for the baby, too.

I take a daily vitamin D supplement so I'm hoping some of that gets passed along to DS.
I take twice the recommended dose and have done so for years. My level was only either 32 or 35. Recommended levels are 30 - 100...I am hoping to be able to get more sun now that my body isn't freaking out over fabric softener. I used to burn in five minutes and then go back to white (no skin darkening at all) but last month got a little red and it actually caused my skin to darken slightly (first time in 11 years).
