When to wean your baby onto solid food? And how to do it? Read (purée-splattered) tips from other Mumsnetters
Can anyone recommend some vitamins for 6 month old? Ideally I'd like something that I could add to purees (so preferably not orange flavour!)Thanks!
Can I ask has a doctor or HV advised you that your baby needs vitamins?
no - just reading Annabel Karmal and River Cottage weaning book - both seem to say if baby is bf it is a good idea to supplement with vitamins A/C/D at 6 months. Is that unusual?
Never heard of baby needing vitamins unless they have health problems? Are you breast feeding and introducing purees? If so I think baby will be getting everything it needs
My HV advises those vits for babies breastfed beyond 6 months. Not necessary for formula fed babies.
My HV says it's new advice that all bf babies should take vits from 6mo. I looked in the supermarkets and only waitrose stock one that's suitable for babies that age. Maybe you can have a look there?Iirc it's to do with rising rates of rickets and lack of vitamin d in this country.
