Why do babies need Vitamin D?
Babies have a crucial need for vitamin D to ensure the optimal development and growth of their bones and teeth, and for the prevention of rickets. Adequate vitamin D is also essential for babies to ensure their developing immune system learns to function optimally. As vitamin D plays a critical role in cell division, this is essential for all of the cells of a rapidly growing baby.
Babies that are breastfed need supplemental vitamin D from birth. According to government guidelines, bottle-fed babies generally don't need extra vitamin D until around 6 months of age, as formula is fortified with vitamin D. It is important to ensure your baby obtains 400IU of vitamin D3 per day from birth (check amounts in formula and how much is consumed daily).
Babies have reduced exposure to sunlight, creating a greater need for vitamin D from birth.
Why choose our Vitamin D For Babies?
Ensure your baby is consuming 400IU of vitamin D daily, from birth. These D3 drops provide 400IU per drop, so only 1 drop is needed; being drops, this provides easy and flexible dosing as they grow, also for older children and even adults. Use with confidence as they contain no preservatives, flavours or colours.
