Baby Ddrops ... the Sunshine Vitamin in just one drop.

Baby Ddrops is a liquid vitamin D designed specifically for breastfed babies and infants. Only 1 drop is required to provide the full daily dose as recommended by the Canadian Paediatric Society and the American Academy of Pediatrics, making it a convenient and easy way to give your baby the nutrients that she needs.

Why parents choose Baby Ddrops:

  • Provides 400 IU of pure, liquid vitamin D3 per drop.
  • Odorless, taste-free drops offer a convenience way to receive the health benefits of vitamin D.
  • One drop can easily be added to food or drink to obtain the desired dose (my kids will take it on their tongue!).
  • Helps fights colds and flu naturally.

Choosing to breastfeed your baby is an important decision. Breast milk is a most perfect source of nutrients because it is composed of the right amounts and appropriate types of fat, carbohydrates and proteins that infants require. However, same as it is difficult for adults to obtain their vitamin D from food, breastfed babies also need to obtain their vitamin D from a combination of the sun, food and supplements. Breast milk contains only 10% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin D. Babies need vitamin D for healthy growth and development. In particular, bones require vitamin D to help with the absorption of calcium. Recent studies show that more vitamin D or sunshine during infancy seems to prevent other diseases later in life, such as juvenile diabetes or multiple sclerosis.

The Canadian Paediatric Society and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that breastfed infants receive a daily dose of 400 IU vitamin D supplementation (1 drop of Baby D Drops).

Baby Ddrops are ideally suited for infants (ages 0-2yrs of age). It was specifically designed for breastfed babies.

Size: 2.5ml (90 drops)

Baby Ddrops medicinal ingredients: Each drop contains vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) 400 IU (10mcg). The vitamin D3 in Ddrops products is naturally sourced from lanolin. Although lanolin comes from sheep wool, the animal is not harmed. Ddrops is classified as a vegetarian product for ‘lacto-ovo’ vegetarian use.

Baby Ddrops non-medicinal ingredients: Thin vegetable oil (purified components of coconut and palm oil). There are no other chemicals or additives. It is tasteless and odourless.

    This is the best way of giving VitD to your baby. I wish all medicine could be dispensed this way. Simply put a drop on your nipple, in food, etc... and voila! Effortless! No taste and only one drop makes baby not notice and not reject the supplement. My children never could tolerate the old type/1mL that is loaded with flavour and dye (and who knows what else). I would strongly recommend this product. (Posted on 1/1/11)

  2. Not very user-friendly Review by Amanda
    Price

    Quality

    I loved the idea of just using one drop and not having any other additives (ie: sugar, dyes) that some other vitamin D drops we've tried have in them. However, I don't find this very user friendly. We are exclusively breastfeeding, and I find it a bit of a hassle to put a drop on my nipple before feeding my little one - some of the time he rubs it off before he gets his mouth latched on. It would be a great product to add to a bottle or food to ensure your little one gets the vitamins he/she needs.

    A note from the bynature.ca team: You can definitely add the Baby DDrops directly to a liquid or food your little one is eating. My 2 year old is happy to just open her mouth and take a drop right on her tongue. It's become a part of our morning routine, and so she asks after breakfast for her 'num num' (vitamin!). Prior to her ability to do this, I would just open her mouth and drop it in at some point during the day. It is tasteless, so she never complained about this. (Posted on 1/4/11)

  3. A must have Review by CINDY

    Vit D for breastfed babies is really important. My first two children were born before these recommendations came out and suffered from vit D deficiencies because of it. Sadly they required dental surgery due to this! The next 3 children were supplemented with vit D and have strong healthy teeth. I am so grateful for D Drops because they are painless to administer to babies and children (or adults, they do make an adult version) via nipple, pacifier, or food. One drop is all you need and it is tasteless and odourless. Compared to the nasty-tasting dropper-fulls we used to have to give, this is heaven!!! (Posted on 1/3/11)

  4. Best vitamin D drops Review by Mariko
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I love how easy it is to use these drops. I had bought a different kind at first that required my baby to take 1 mgs and it was difficult to get such a young baby to swallow so much, plus it smelled like cough medicine which I didn't want to be one of her first tastes. The baby D drops are so much easier to use, you only need to put one drop on your nipple, soother or bottle nipple and let the baby suck for at least 30 seconds. So easy on mom and baby, plus there is no gross taste for baby either. (Posted on 1/1/11)
