I have heard that it is neccessary to give your baby a multi-vitamin with Iron in it if you are breastfeeding. Anyone have more information on this? I mean, women breastfed thier babies for centuries without it. Is it REALLY necessary for me to give it to my daughter? She is 3 1/2 months old, and her doctor told me to give it to her at her last appointment (2 month). I haven't because I was told by MANY other people, including my own mom that it's unnecessary.
