Hello dear Tita,
Basically, supplements are given to babies if there is a recommendation from the doctor who examined your baby directly. Here are some examples of baby conditions that require supplements:
growth and development disorders occur
experiencing chronic disease, either due to infection or non-infection, such as cancer
baby's diet is limited, for example, not eating meat
You need to know, most babies do not need supplements because various micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) are contained in daily food and drink intake, especially if your baby has started to be introduced to complementary foods (complementary foods).
Entering the age of 6 months, the baby's nutritional needs cannot be fulfilled only from breast milk. For this reason, solid food was introduced gradually. This can also underlie the difficulty of eating babies. Food texture that is too coarse or the taste of food is not good enough to make babies picky about their food. Likewise, improper feeding techniques have the potential to cause psychological trauma for your baby.
Apart from the causes above, there are several other medical problems that cause babies to have difficulty eating:
growth of milk teeth
infection, both in the respiratory tract and digestive tract
Thus, it would be best if you see a pediatrician who usually examines your baby. If you feel the need, the doctor can prescribe medication, including supplements, for your baby according to the underlying condition of the complaint.
Hopefully this is useful
