How do I know if my baby needs a vitamin D supplement?
Many pediatricians recommend that exclusively breastfed babies take a vitamin D supplement from day one in order to ensure they are getting the recommended dose of 400 IU per day. Many formula-fed babies get enough vitamin D from their formula intake. It’s best to check with your pediatrician to find out what is best for your baby.
How do I give it to my baby, and how often should I give it to them?
Shake the bottle well before each use. Tip the bottle upside down 2-3 times before removing cap. Place one drop onto nipple or pacifier, or mix with milk, juice or food.
One drop daily is all your breastfed baby needs to get the recommended daily dose of Organic Vitamin D Drops as determined by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Do not exceed dosage.
Can I drop directly into my babies mouth?
We don’t recommend dropping the Organic Vitamin D Drops directly into your baby’s mouth. Putting the drop onto a nipple or pacifier makes it easier to ensure they only get 1 drop.
