If this has been prescribed by the doctor then yes. as this will be based on your baby's physical examination by the doctor. The Indian Academy of Pediatrics makes it mandatory for all babies to get D3 supplement for the first one year of life but not calcium and iron.

if doc has prescribed them then by all means plz do. do not miss or skip them. they are essential. do not think of them as Normal medicines, they are multivitamins which as essential just like food for the growth and well being
