    I don't think they're necessary, I have never been recommended them, Lucas was ff and BLW and has never had them :)

    I dont think they are necessary! I know BF babies iron stores can get low by 6 months but there is iron in formula. we never used them. Good that she gave you some justification for her recommendation :haha:

    My pediatrician recommended I give Kenneth vitamin D drops, but he's BF. I think that she said vitamin D isn't necessary if FF.

    I asked my health visitor about this the other day and she was about as helpful as yours by the sound of it lol. She did say they are now saying FF babies should have vitamins now as well as BF.
