I asked DD's pediatrician if I should give her vitamins. He told me that as long as she's eating a little bit of everything, she should be fine without the suppliments. I don't know how comfortable I feel giving such a young child a multivitamin.
My physician called in a liquid vitamin with iron. We thought it was best since he has been sick off and on for 5 weeks (ear infection, sinus infection, cold). It coincided with his being taken off formula and going on whole milk.
our pediatrician recomended vitamin drops called Poly-Vi-Sol by Enfamil. when he told me to get them my dd was not 2 yet, but i guess close enough (by a few months). my mom said that she actually gave me and my sister those same vitamin drops when we were kids so they've been around for a long time and are trusted!
For babies, Poly-Vi-Sol from Enfamil tends to be the usual vitamin given. The bottle of vitamins will indicate the age they are appropriate for. I found that age 4 and up is what most bottles recommends. I found one today that is a chewable vitamin, not the gummy kind and it okay for 1 year old and older.
I know this is about 8yrs too late lol. But if you go to your health shop you may be able to get a product called floravital it's a multivitamin for kids and I think it's from 6 months old or you can get floradix which is an iron supplement with heaps of vitamins in them from natural sources - I know that's definately from 6 minths old. They are yummy tasting especially if you keep them in the fridge.
