How do you feel about poly vi sol?

I took my 15 month old son to his 15 month check up yesterday. My pediatrician asked if I was giving him his vitamins and fluoride. I said "yes", but the truth is I have never filled the script.
Is it really that important to have it? He is a really healthy eater. He loves broccoli, spinach, avocado, and a variety of fruits and veggies. He still nurses about 3 times a day. I don't give him cows milk because of a couple reasons. I hate the smell and taste of cows milk. He has the worst, sour smelling poops when he has cows milk. We have coconut and almond milk in the house.
I'm really curious what you all think.
His weight is 19 pounds 7 ounces.
His height is 19.7 inches.

    I was wondering the same thing after I posted the link. (Unfortunately, I'm a techno-idiot.) However, I'm pretty sure that if you go to www.naturalnews.com, you could type in the key word "fluoride" to search articles within the site. This article should pop up when you do that. Otherwise, it's an informative site in general. Good luck!

    Can someone make this clicky? I'm mobile and really want to read it

    I think the fact that you're apprehensive of fluoride is a sign that your motherly instincts are in proper operating condition, haha. 

    Seriously, though, that crap is dangerous. If I were you, I'd also be wary of public tap water since fluoride is added to it in large amounts. Here's a good source to check out:

    Thank you very much! I've been to kellymom.com a few times, but since I'm only mobile its a confusing site. I think it has gotten better though, either that or I am figuring it out. lol
