  • Ok my knowledgeable lady friends!!! What's the deal with Vit D drops???? I've heard you definitely have to give if exclusively breastfeeding............what if you were breastfeeding and supplementing???

  • We gave them to Benjamin, even though we were supplementing. I was told that they don't hurt, to give them to him, and when supplementing you aren't always supplementing a ton, so this way you are guaranteed they get the Vitamin D...

  • I did it off and on with Marek, nothing consistent. The doctor recommended it because we live in an area without much sunlight, and he was exclusively breastfed. Clearly, only getting them every now and again didn't hurt him. I don't think it matters one way or another, really.
