Hello, it is good to give vitamin d3 but this dose is on higher side. We need 400 iu per day so allow a vit d3 half sachet once a month only and other multivitamins are fine if you want though I would not recommend that if appetite covers all natural sources of vitamins. However, if you want you continue you can but please take care of d3 vitamin dosage. Take care.
