Quick question for all you knowledgeable ladies - my DD is about to turn 6 months. She is bf about 4 times a day and 2 (relatively small) bottles of formula. I know nhs recommends ebf babies should take vitamin drops post 6m - do you think I need to give to DD in my situation? I know formula contains some vits but she only has about 250ml max a day at the moment. Not seeing HV until April so thought would ask here in meantime. Oh and I have literally just started weaning her this week - but only small amount of puree at lunchtimes so far. Thanks in advance! grin

I think all babies and children age 6 months to 5 years are advised to supplement vitamins A,C and D unless they are taking more than 500mls of formula per day as it already contains these vitamins.
