Did doctor ask you to give it?

Sheeba Vijesh

vit. d3 is required for baby's growth and development, it is very less in breast milk. was your baby low weight at birth? try to get baby morning sunbath, which will also get him vitamin d... since the prescribed medicine is not available, give after 10 days, but everyday give sunbath...

Vit D3 is very rarely found in foods. Also none of the foods like mushrooms or egg yellow or salmon is given to babies this age. It is recommended by Indian Academy of Pediatrics to supplement all infants below one year of age. It is best not to skip. Speak y
to your doctor there are many brands available and it's ok to change brands.
