Vitamins and Fluoride



Infant formulas and breastmilk contain all the necessary vitamins so there is no
need to give supplemental vitamins unless they are ordered by us. Extra fluoride
is not needed in any baby less than 6 months of age, regardless of whether they
are formula-fed or breastfed. After 6 months of age, certain babies and children
may require fluoride supplementation, but only if their primary water source has
no or low fluoride content (well water, some bottled water). If you have concerns
about the fluoride content in your water supply, discuss this with your pediatrician
at the 6 month well baby visit.
