|The amount of sun exposure needed to maintain adequate 25 hydroxyvitamin D levels in the normal range in the breastfed infant is as follows|
|Higher levels of melanin, a natural sun screen, requires more exposed sunlight than white skinned populations to produce the same amount of vitamin D. And in white-skinned infants the application of sunscreen blocks the synthesis of vitamin D after ultraviolet radiation.|
Grace - wife to Jeff and mama to Nigella (11/08) and Orrin (01/10)- expecting a new addition (05/12)! Life is a whirlwind, but I'm learning to enjoy the ride!
Completely forgot about it... Not worried, as Bella is now over 12lb and seems to be doing just fine! We're heading into spring anyway. She's totally breast fed and doesn't like anything else, so I can't imagine going through the rigmarole of feeding an upset little girl vitamin D drops every day...gah!
Just to clarify, it is 1 drop, not a dropper full and DS is exclusively bf too. Adding a vitamin doesn't change that.
