Question for any breastfeeding moms who happen to be reading my blog:
Did the pediatrician suggest you give your baby a liquid vitamin?
Our pediatrician (not one I chose, but that's another story for another day) is really pushing it, and I don't want to give Tristan liquid vitamins. He suggested I give them to him "right before" he nurses, & then tells me that it tastes disgusting. Ok. Right. I'm sure that will really encourage him to latch on. Lol. Also, he wants me to do the Tri-Vi-Sol with iron. Can you imagine how upset his little tummy would be with taking iron supplement every day? I take a daily multivitamin, and I eat a well balanced diet. The pediatrician says the vitamins are for Vitamin D, because the American Academy of Pediatrics indicates that babies need more vitamin D. I take Tristan outside every day if the sun is shining; there's his vitamin D. It just seems like a liquid multivitamin isn't something he needs.
