The mothers who breastfeed their children think that it's the ideal food choice for babies and has all the essential vitamins. Although breastmilk is a vital vitamin component, it does not contain two nutrients that are essential in sufficient amounts that are Iron in the form of iron and Vitamin D.
Vitamin D is essential for kids to have strong bones. Iron is vital to the development of a well-functioning brain as well as blood cells. The infants also require iron to avoid any anemia and iron deficiency. Children who eat a broad range of different foods when they are growing, don't require any other vitamins than breastmilk.
But, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, in the case of a baby who was born prematurely, is smaller than the gestational age, or has a low birth weight, and consumes less breast milk than other babies, then they may require supplements and vitamins.
