How much amount of Zincovit/ multi vitamins should be given to a baby who is below 12 months( mine is 3 months old) ? I have consulted 2 doctors, one has told to given 6 drops/ day, other suggested for 1 ml/ day. After giving 1 ml/ day, her weight is increasing like 1 kg/ week, I am pretty much confused what to do, the doctor also given separately vitamin D drops (1ml).

Hi Shatabdi, considering your baby is only 3 months, she should be on breastmilk only. On breastmilk, for the baby to gain this much weight seems a little unnatural. Go in for a medical opinion.
