I did a ton of research on the best type of Vitamin D drops... ultimately came to this brand. After reading many many labels, it seems as though this one has the least amount of extra 'stuff' in it. We have used this for months- have had no issues!
I love these. I can't tell you how difficult it was to force feed a whole dropper size amount of enfamil Vi Di Sol down my children's throats. They hated it. This is so easy one tiny drop carefully dropped onto your finger or nipple and they suck it down! The reviews being negative about the bottle not being full---there's an "attention " message ON THE BOTTLE that says BOTTLE NOT COMPLETELY FILLED. pay attention people. Yes it's a bit pricey but compared to how much enfamil drops get wasted it's worth it. Just carefully tilt the bottle slowly on your fingertip and one drop comes out at a time.
We were prescribed the Enfamil vitamin D drops for our child, and it was such a task to get 1ML of medicine "fed" to a newborn. It wouldn't have been that big of an issue if it didn't stain horribly (so we were putting protective coverings over everything in case she started drooling, spitting or what not). SUCH A MESS.Enter Ddrops. All you need is one drop... not 1 ML... one drop. I put it on my nipple before having her latch and it was so easy. Plus, it is a clear liquid so staining isn't an issue anymore. We aren't bothering with the rest of the Enfamil bottle after making the switch. Do yourself a favor and get these instead!-Michelle
I used these drops with my oldest child and now with my youngest. I just place one drop on my nipple before breastfeeding once a day. You could also put a drop in a bottle or mix with baby food. Neither child seems to mind the taste. One bottle will last along time, almost a year. My only complaint is that it sometimes takes a while for the drop to come out, which can be a little frustrating when you have a really hungry baby who does not want to wait a few seconds before he can eat. The bottle has a cap on the top that acts as a dropper, so you just have to turn the bottle upside down and wait for the drop to come out. In general, waiting a few seconds is not that big of a deal. I would still recommend these vitamin drops.
Originally the pediatrician prescribed a multivitamin to give our son when he was a few weeks old. I don’t understand why a baby needs a multivitamin when they get all they need from breastmilk. Vitamin d is the only supplement they don’t get enough of in breastmilk. The multivitamin was gross (the smell!!) and he threw up the first dose we gave him and after looking at the ingredients in it I was mad at myself for even giving it to him in the first place. I immediately threw it away and started researching vitamin d supplements for babies and came across this one and ordered it. It’s only one small little drop a day that they can suck off your finger, paci, or nipple/bottle. It’s super easy and natural. Very few ingredients. Extremely happy with this purchase. It is a small bottle but it really does last about 3 months.
Repeat buyer of this product. These drops are odorless and don't have a taste to them. Read a lot of reviews before buying it for 1st baby, and now buying it again for 2nd baby. Made of good ingredients, and glass bottle design keeps it clean from contamination. I feed it differently to baby than the instructions - when baby is lying down, I just open his mouth and turn the bottle upside down to drop one drop onto his tongue.
The stuff that the doctor sent us home with is full of sugar and color and you have to force-feed your baby a full syringe of it. It smells like cough syrup. Poor kid always spit half out and I felt like a jerk making her drink it. This stuff is only vitamin D in coconut oil, and one tiny drop does it! Other people say put it on your nipple or wait ten minutes for a drop to come out....guys, seriously, you just tap a drop on your finger, easy peasy. My five month old is big on grabbing my fingers to chew on anyway, she never even notices the vitamin is on there. Love this stuff. Will definitely order again.
I won’t be buying this again because I hate the bottle design. Two dosages come out instead of 1 and it’s hard to control it. I only need one dose, so I give my baby this every other day vs. everyday as I’m worried I’m giving her too much.
Purchased this March 31st 2018, started using it May 9, 2018 - added a drop to my son's bottle every AM. I noticed about 8 weeks after using that there were black spots forming inside the lid and where the drops come out, which appears to be mold. This was stored at room temperature and directions as listed were followed and it's listed that it does not expire until 2/2021. Very disappointed in this product, as I was hopeful to have the same experience as those that gave this product 5 stars.
