Vitamin supplements

Many premature babies are discharged from hospital taking vitamins and iron. This is because babies store up vitamins in the last month of pregnancy, so babies born before 36 weeks may have missed out on this.

You will be advised by your GP or health visitor on how long your baby should continue taking vitamins, but it is usually until the baby is weaned and taking a balanced diet of solid food.
