15 days boy baby new born

Hello there, Adliv drops, robopeptin, stamina Z, osto polybion, Gastica drops. These are the medicines/syrups prescribed by the doctor pediatrician for my new born. Happened to learn from the other doctor pediatrician that all the medicine are not required and he suggested us to use only the multi vitamin syrup and stamina z syrup and to stop all the other syrups immediately. The list of medicines are Adliv drops, robopeptin, stamina Z, osto polybion, Gastica drops. There are no specific problems for the kid except for the early jaundice symptoms which is cured by putting him under the light for two days. And its a general learning that the new borns should be fed only calcium and iron supplements apart from the mother milk. Kindly advise.
