is it necessary to put baby under the sun for few months after birth? does ir make bone strong? does it affect the skin tone of the baby??

Sonali Shivlani

Exposure to morning sunlight will help baby absorb vitamin D3. This vitamin is essential for calcium absorption and hence yes it helps in the building of bones. Morning indirect sunlight for ten to fifteen minutes will not affect the skin tone.


Pls keep baby in the morning sun so the rays are light in that time. All the best

Very true.... morning sunlight is good for babies to get healthy bones.

yea its important..lil exposure to sunlight around 5-10minutes in d morning n As Vitamin-D plays a very important role in absorption of calcium.lts important fr everyone especially fr new born babies n yes It affects d skin tone if u vl give a direct exposure of sunlight to ur baby which isnt gud..lil exposure of sunlight during morning whn d rays r nt high its gud fr babies..now days many new born babies r born vid jaundice.So doctors suggests indirect exposure of sunlight in d morning fr 5-10minutes.
