It’s amazing how clear the importance of having sufficient Vitamin D has become in all sectors of health now. Your baby is born with approximately 300 bones which are the foundation of the musculoskeletal system, and during the first year of life will start to fuse together. This process is called ossification and needs Vitamin D to help with bone density. But it's not just important for bone health, Vitamin D also plays a crucial role in developing a healthy respiratory system as well as gut and immune health in your growing baby.

Department of Health
The Department of Health and NHS recommend that breastfed babies from birth to 1 year of age should be given a daily supplement containing 8.5 to 10 micrograms (400iu) of Vitamin D to make sure they get enough, whether or not their mother is taking a Vitamin D supplement. Formula-fed babies should not be given a Vitamin D supplement until they're having less than 500ml (about a pint) of infant formula a day, as infant formula is fortified with vitamin D. Children aged 1 to 4 years old should be given a daily supplement containing 10µg of vitamin D.

The drops don’t need to be taken with food or water and can be taken at any time of day.
