Natures Aid Award-Winning Vitamin D3 drops has been designed specifically for breastfed babies, infants and children. We were sent some to try out with little Isla and Noah, they didn’t mind taking it and surprisingly it has gone down as a bit of a treat. (They love taking their medicine too when poorly).
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium for strong, healthy bones and teeth. This is especially important for childrens growing bodies. It comes in a really handy bottle with a dropper, which makes it easier to drop it into their drinks or food. I tend to drop the recommended 0.5ml into Noah and Isla’s juice drinks with their lunch and I know that they have got it and are set up for the next 24 hours. I only do this once a day, but you can do it up to 2 times a day from when your baby is 1 month old up until they are 5 years old.
The UK Department of Health recommends that all babies aged from 6 months to 5 years should take a Vitamin D supplement.
Official recommended dosage:
Infants and children aged 1 month to 5 years old: Take 0.5ml daily 1-2 times daily. Place drops onto mothers nipple or a pacifier and allow baby to suck for 30 seconds or mix with formula, juice or food. Not suitable for infants consuming 500ml or more of formula milk a day and infants under 1 month of age unless under medical supervision.
The Vitamin D3 drops are free from sugars, flavourings, preservatives, artificial colours, lactose, yeast and gluten free. So I know they are safe to use and have been safe for Isla since she was 1 month old. A bottle lasts us just under 2 months, as both Isla and Noah share the drops, but I know they will healthy bones and teeth as they are growing big and strong.
