Re: vitamin drops
We did give them to DJ, I believe starting around 2 months, but he had very low iron so there was a specific reason. The drops do smell disgusting but he never minded them at all. We usually gave them to him mixed in a bottle of breastmilk but even when we gave them straight, he never flinched. I agree with the others that you should discuss it with your ped and find out why he wants you to give the vitamins. Unless he has a specific concern, breastmilk should be plenty at that age.
