Vitamin Recommendations at Madison Pediatrics

Learn more about what the medical team at Madison Pediatrics recommends for daily vitamin supplements.

Vitamins

Breast-fed infants under 1 year

  • 0-6 months: D Vi-Sol, 1 dropper per day
  • 6-12 months: Poly-Vi-Sol with iron, 1 dropper per day

Formula-fed infants get their vitamins in their formula, so additional vitamins are not necessary.

All infants 12-24 months

  • Poly-vi-sol with iron, 1 dropper per day

All children 2 years and up

  • Chewable multivitamin with iron (for example, Flintstones or Centrum Complete)

Multivitamins are available over-the-counter and do not require a prescription. Unfortunately, gummy vitamins don’t have iron, so they're not a good choice.

Fluoride

Fluoride must be prescribed by a pediatrician.

6 months - 3 years
  • None, unless assessed by pediatrician as having an increased risk for developing cavities
3 years and up
  • One chewable tablet a day (0.5 mg/day for 3-6 years, 1 mg/day for 6 years and up) as prescribed by pediatrician
