Q.

Mulit vitamine

Hi
My baby is 10,5 months old and have white spots on her vinger nails. Can this be due to a certain vitamine shortage in her body? Can you please advise me on a mulit vitamine that I can give her or is she too young for this?

This is not due to a vitamin deficiency nor to a calcium deficiency.The cause is not always obvious. Sometimes these spots may follow on the baby having had a chest infection. They usually diasppear by themselves later on.
