The drops my DW gives our DD is one drop per day, she puts it in her nipple before latching the baby on at the bedtime feeding. If you are bottle feeding you can put one drop on the bottle nipple or into the bottle.

Canadian Paediatric Society that exclusively breastfed babies should be given a vitamin D supplement every day.
I take DHA supplements that has 400 IU of vitamin D. I'm darker skinned - Asian. My husband is Caucasian.
My baby is about two weeks old and the weather here theses days is sunny. It's rainy from Oct - April.
I have not been out in the sun with the baby much yet as I'm focusing on recovering and breastfeeding my baby.
Is my baby at a risk of vitamin D deficiency? Will I need to give vitamin D drops to my baby?
