Vitamins and minerals are essential for your baby’s growth and development. If your child isn’t getting enough vitamins and minerals from their food, this is called a deficiency.
Vitamin D is vital for bone and muscle health. In the womb, babies get all their vitamin D from their mum; however, those levels go down after birth until the baby starts to builds stores up through food and exposure to sunlight. That said, if mum had a low vitamin D level, then bub could too.
Other risks, according to the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, include:
Breastmilk doesn’t contain a lot of vitamin D, so it’s recommended that breastmilk fed babies with one or more of the above risk factors take a supplement. But as always, talk to your GP or another health professional first.
Formula-fed babies don’t usually need a supplement because formula contains higher levels of vitamin D.
Probiotic supplements have become quite common for both adults and children – touted as a way to promote good gut health. According to the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, probiotics are safe for healthy infants and children, and they could help manage allergies, provide relive from eczema symptoms and reduce the regularity and duration of diarrhoea.
Pregnancy Birth & Baby says children on a vegan or vegetarian diet may need supplements once they have finished breastfeeding – vitamin B12, which is mainly in animal foods; they could also be low in iron, zinc and calcium.
Before adding vitamin supplements to your baby’s diet, talk with your GP or family health nurse.
