Thoughts on flouride drops?

My ped wants us to start giving Simon flouride drops. I don't know how to feel about this, I don't want to give him things he doesn't need. Does everyone do flouride?

    We give a multivitamin with flouride.  I do it because I didn't think our pedi would have us give our LO something if it wasn't necessary.

    My cousin is giving her son (same age as ours) flouride drops.  So, I asked our doctor and she said they don't recommend it until 3 years old.  That is quite a difference in opinions so I am wondering what others are doing also.

    Our pedi gaves my DS fluoride drops because we have well water.  I believe that most city water has fluoride in it.  Where we live, it does.

    At my lo's last appt, my ped suggested fluoride drops as well. He also said we could just make his bottles with nursery water, which we do sometimes, because that has fluoride in it. I wasn't sure how I felt about it either because I don't want to give him something unnecessary.
