Vitamins For Breastfeeding Babies So That They Don’t Lose Weight?

Hello, I want to ask if there are vitamins to increase the appetite for breastfeeding for babies aged 2 months. The color has been the last 2 weeks. My child is lazy to carry out breastfeeding which causes his weight to drop dramatically.

Basically, vitamins do not cause an increase in appetite or drinking. Vitamins improve immunity, so that someone feels healthier. Feeling healthier indirectly increases one's appetite. In infants, especially babies who are very young, you should not be given any supplement intake. Baby digestion is still very sensitive, so supplementation can actually be dangerous, unless given on medical indication.


Baby needs are basically fulfilled by breast milk. Decreased baby's appetite may be caused by various things, for example:

Abdominal pain due to inflammation or infection of the digestive tract.
Discomfort in the environment. For example due to certain sounds or odors.
Trouble drinking. For example due to shortness of breath.

There are many other possibilities. Therefore, you should take your baby to a pediatrician to get a detailed examination. The doctor may need to do a blood sample examination to support the diagnosis. The treatment will be adjusted to the doctor's findings. Currently keep breastfeeding according to the wishes of the baby so that nutrition is maintained.


Hopefully this answer can be useful. Regards.
