When I was EBF, I didn't, but her GI tried to get me to. I still feel like breastmilk is nutritionally complete for their needs. Her pediatrician tended to agree with me on that one. I never supplemented any with my three boys, either. Now that I've been "bullied" into moving to formula feeding to try to move on with this diagnostic process, there's no need to since the formula has them included.

I'm so sorry Katie, I understand how hard it is for you to have to give up bf before your ready to.
I ebf Matthew and I did supplement vit d for like a month and a half then stoped and just never picked it up again. I feel like bm has everything they really need in it, if not then how did humans survive before all this stuff was made? Just my thought lol but I don't supplement anything right now and don't plan to unless its necessary.
But I do take prenatal vitamins and will throughout my bf time lol
I haven't given Kyah any supplements. Like you two, I also feel like breast milk is sufficient. I was also taking prenatal vitamins still, and just stopped.....no good reason...it slipped my mind really. I am going to start back taking them now. I already have a huge bottle, and refills waiting when that runs out.
mY ped wants me to give vit d drops.. meh.. I make sure she gets plenty of sunshine. If we lived in a place where it was more rainy or less sun I would. But we go outside just about every day. I have a hard time swollowing the your bm is not enough pill...
I tried to give Olivia some Poly Vi Sol but she gags and absolutely hates it. I haven't been giving her much in the department of supplements because I too feel Breast milk is enough. She is growing and developing just fine. I myself try to take my prenatals when I remember. Sounds like we're doing the right thing. =)
