a newborn baby who’s breastfed should
00:06
start taking vitamin D supplements at
00:08
approximately 2 weeks of age we’d like
00:11
to make sure that the latch is
00:12
established and the babies breastfeeding
00:13
well but after that we do like to
00:15
introduce vitamin D because the vitamin
00:17
D and breast milk is not transferred
00:19
well and absorb well by the baby so
00:21
those babies do need extra vitamin D
00:23
it’s sold over the counter it’s one
00:25
dropper over full which is 1 ml 400
00:27
units per day babies who are bottle fed
00:30
standard cow’s milk or soy milk formula
00:33
or any of the standardized formulas
00:35
actually they all supplemented with
00:37
vitamins so you do not need to give a
00:39
baby who’s on formula vitamins that
00:41
being said some parents do believe in
00:44
vitamins and they like to give
00:45
supplements and really vital mins for
00:47
children do not cause harm if used in a
00:49
small dosage like the recommended child
00:51
dosage that’s over-the-counter after age
00:53
one baby can take the liquid drops there
00:57
are certain name brands but it’s
00:59
children multivitamin that’s
01:00
over-the-counter if your doctor
01:02
recommends that your baby needs iron you
01:04
might give a vitamin supplemented with
01:06
iron as well at 4 months sometimes
01:08
babies need more iron especially babies
01:11
who are not taking solids yet so at 4
01:13
months some doctors recommend vitamin D
01:15
drops with iron or a multivitamin with
01:17
iron for your baby but those are not
01:19
written with a prescription but you
01:21
should discuss with your doctor what
01:22
vitamins your baby needs or does not
01:24
need in addition in different states and
01:26
different localities some of the water
01:28
is floor and I’d it fluorinated and some
01:30
is not so you need to find out if the
01:32
water in your child’s neighborhood is
01:35
fluorinated or if you need to give your
01:37
child a fluoride supplement in New York
01:39
City the water has fluoride so we do not
01:40
give our children fluoride in the drops
01:42
because that would be excess fluoride
01:44
and it would cause staining of the teeth
01:46
as a child grows if your child eats a
01:48
well-balanced diet they do not need to
01:50
take a vitamin I often say that the more
01:52
expensive the vitamin the more expensive
01:53
the urine because I usually just excrete
01:56
most of it out
01:58
