Breastfeeding is best for babies. If you are supplementing breast milk or you are not breastfeeding, iron-fortified infant formula is the only other food that should be provided to baby for the first six months.

Continue to provide a vitamin D supplement to breastfed babies who are only given small amounts of formula.
