Our breastfeeding journey has been pretty blessed: I have a baby that eats well and loves to do so, and my body has been great at producing what she needs. I don’t take this for granted, I know that many women and babes struggle with exclusive breastfeeding for several reasons. Since breastmilk is straight-up magic, we just give Clara one thing for strong bone development and growth: vitamin D!
Since we are exclusively breastfeeding, our pediatrician recommended that we supplement with vitamin D. My fabulous mommas in my Facebook community suggested Vitamin D drops! They are so easy to use and Clara doesn’t even notice them. I sneak them in while she’s at the breast before her bedtime feed. This works great since she’s very interested in eating no matter what 😉 I know some mommas put a drop on a pacifier for babe to take, and that works just as well! As long as baby is getting that vitamin D in, way to go mommas!
Giving this supplement is a piece of cake! I’m so grateful my fellow mamas told me about these!
