My dd has taken a multi vitamin since age 2. I think before than they recommend the vitamin drops if you feel they are not getting enough nutrition.

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.

I was told age 2 by my docter. Each one differs, but i do know the bottle is recommend for 2 years on up.

donna- glad to hear you were able to get some of the drops. Sorry to hear your baby is sick, hope he gets better soon =)

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.
