Iron supplement for 4 month old?

Our pediatrician recommended we give our little girl .5ml of an iron supplement every morning. Upon asking our friends with children if that was a thing that they had to do, ALL of them said they had never heard of it. Is this a new thing or have the just missed out on it. Our little one has no health issues and is growing at a good rate. Any advise or information is very welcomed, thank you Reddit!

Edit: some additional details I realized I may have forgotten our baby is 4 months old currently taking vitamin D 100% breastfeed and not eating any foods yet but we are looking to start baby led weaning when she is ready.
