weeLove: How to Give Baby a Dose of Vitamin D
BUILD STRONG BONES FROM DAY 1 WITH WELLBABY D
A daily dose of sunshine can be an excellent source of vitamin D for us grown-ups. But breastfed babies actually need a supplement to get a head start on building strong, healthy bones and teeth. (While breast milk is full of good stuff like proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and vitamins, it’s lacking in the D department according to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.)
Giving a finicky baby a vitamin is actually a lot easier than you think, thanks to Wellbaby D. This new, all-natural liquid drop is made with only vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) and coconut oil. It doesn’t contain any dyes, flavors, sugar, or preservatives. The easy to use dropper and super small concentrated dose ensures your baby gets the exact amount recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (400 IU per day). We’re talking about a single drop, not a dropper-full which makes it easy to get right in baby’s mouth before they even have a clue. You can also mix with milk or place on a pacifier, nipple or finger.
Breastfed babies will need this added dose of D until you wean or baby starts drinking 32 ounces a day of vitamin D-fortified formula or, after 12 months, whole cow’s milk. By the time baby turns one, you’ll wish everything was as easy as vitamin time…
