Do you give your child extra vitamins or suppliments? Which ones?

Yep, Nyla takes double the daily vitamins. Her ped says it should help boost her immune system.

Ava takes a Mito cocktail that her genetics Dr put her on. It's CoQ10, riboflavin, and Levocarnitine. She also takes ferrous sulfate and multivitamins.

Oh & probiotics....

I would say to call her ped but we all know that wouldn't be very helpful... I would just wait it out until the next ped. If she gets in the sun and is BF then she should have no problems with Vit D.

Danny is on Zinc, Vitamin A, Selenium, and Lauricedin (SP), as well as probiotics and a multivitamin. He had a hair test done and lots of blood work done to check other levels so we will see if anything gets added in at our next naturopath appointment. :/

It is not necessary at all, but wont hurt her if you chose to do it. This decision is totally up to you :) The liquid vitamins taste so bad it is hard to get BF babies to take them. She will get everything she needs from you.
