Our pediatrician recommended this product for our infant (she's currently 6 months in age) because the product has the cleanest, quality ingredients for a D3 supplement. The serving is only one drop, daily, which makes it easy to add to a bottle or put a small drop on our baby's mouth.
This is a great product. I used it for a year with my first and just bought it again for my second child. It's a small volume so you don't have to worry about spilling. Just one drop does the job! You can put the drop on yourself just before nursing, and it's odorless so there is no resisting it. And it's colorless so if you are doing this in the dark and accidentally drop it on your clothes, it doesn't cause a nasty stain. You do have the bottle upside down for almost 10 seconds for a drop to come out, but the advantage here is that if you knocked the bottle over, it won't cause a big spill.
Easy to use by mixing in with my childrens morning juice. I've used this vitamin D3 drops since my kids were babies, and they are now 7 and 4. I've just added more drops as they get older according to their body weight. The size of the bottle is convenient plus it lasts quite some time in our home.
I started these drops for my infant. I would put a drop on my nip before feeding him. Sometimes I would forget but I would try to remember to do it at his last feed every day. The drops come out sooooo slow. When you have a screaming crying hungry infant and these drops won’t come out fast enough, it’s very discouraging. According to the leche league, the mother needs at least 6400IUs in order to get the baby what they need thru the breast milk. Because I already take my prenatal vitamins and vitamin d I just upped my dosage so that my babe can get the vitamin thru the breast milk. I believe it is easier this way, plus I don’t forget anymore. If you go this route, be sure to check your prenatal, there is typically some vitamin d already in it, but not enough. I believe these drops would be better for bottle fed babies as you can keep the drops on the countertop as a reminder and you don’t have to worry about a screaming babe.
Good vitamin D supplement safe ingredients with good quality and taste, size and serving is great as it lasts long but not so easy to use due to the package (needs improvement) suitable for babies from newborn age
