Hi, did u start giving ur child any Syrup at a later age?

Dr.Aarushi Upadhyay (Thakkar)

hi , if yor child is on breast feed then no supplements what so ever r required.
u must continue yor intake of healthy nutritious foods & vitamin n calcium supplements.
that wil automatically go to the child.

Thank you Doc n Supriya

world health organisation states only breast milk should be given, nothing else. unless a blood test has found a deficiency vitamins should never be taken by anyone. It is possible to overdoses on a vitamin.

S , I agree with Ruth Malik.
