    Default Vitamin D drops

    Do we really need them? I'm a little concerned since my baby was born into the darkest, coldest months of the year and gets almost no sunlight.

    I'm Canadian. So over the winter my girls don't get much natural sunlight. However milk in Canada has Vitamin D added. For the babies while nursing, I've given it. Although I admit that I'm not regular with it. I give it when I remember. I know I don't get enough natural vitamin D, but I do get it via my prenatal vitamins and in milk. I wouldn't want my babies to be deficient. IMO, it's worth giving.

    I give baby D drops. 1 tiny drop on the nipple before feeding-easy! I live in the Middle East where there is lots of sun but they still recommend to take it here-I guess we try to avoid the sun here.

    It can't hurt and may help, so why not?

    A vitamin D supplement is especially important if you or your baby are darker skinned people, or if you spend most of your time indoors- and most of us do!
