Are you breastfeeding? Because then as long as you take a vitamin D supplement your baby should be getting it from that. As far as drops I am not sure but could you ask your doctor? And good for you looking into vitamin D…the things that can happen from deficieny are scary

@Sulli301: Actually our ped said they don’t get much Vitamin D thru breastmilk and that we needed to make sure to suppliment.

Our Pedi agreed with @camrie:‘s pedi.  We used the D-Vi-Sol and had no ill effects.

@camrie: & @Pelikila: thank you! You two have given me another reason to switch doctors. It’s kind of a long story but I just don’t think my DDs daughter is very pro-bfing or knowledable about bfing 🙁

 

@troubled: Sorry! I am now on the hunt for the right drops too. And iron. I bet you can get an rx too? Or were you told to go buy one?

@troubled: Our pedi recommended Tri-Vi-Sol (emfamil) which we do give DS. They were pretty brand specific so that’s what we have been giving him. Can you ask about Tri-Vi-Sol vs. D-Vi-Sol? I noticed that the Tri-Vi-Sol is gluten-free and artifical sweetner-free, where as the D-Vi-Sol is only gluten-free. That might help put your mind at ease a little, and both are recommend for breastfed babies.

@Sulli301: We give DS the regular Tri-Vi-Sol drops, but they do make a Tri-Vi-Sol with Iron version. Ask your PCP and after your 4 month if your still not satisfied with their service, a consult with another doctor never hurt anyone. After all, she is your daughter.

We use Carlsons and they are great. Baby doesn’t seem to care at all when we give him the drop. And yes, it’s just one tiny drop each day.
