Do we still need to give Iron supplement to our exclusively breastfed baby? P.s. My wife already takes Iron.

Since your wife already taking iron supplement, it will pass to baby through breastmilk. Never feed baby under 1 year old with any vitamins or supplements as this will burden their little kidney. If you feel there is any concern for your baby, e.g. anemia, you should consult PD first before you feed your baby iron supplement.

Thanks Diana! Pedia always recommends vitamins for our baby but my wife defies it because she wants to purely breastfeed our baby and preserves her virgin gut.
