Some doctors will recommend Vitamin D drops to babies who are breastfeeding. This is because many babies are not getting the Vitamin D they need from breastmilk. Deciding to let your baby take vitamins is personal, but it is important that little ones get enough Vitamin D.
In order to make sure that this happens, you can take your infant into the sunlight for about 10 minutes each day. You can also take a Vitamin D supplement to pass the supplement on through your breastmilk.
Before making a decision regarding vitamins for your baby, always speak with the pediatrician first. He or she can assess your child’s specific situation.
Always check with your doctor regarding health questions and issues.
