I know giving vitamin d drops to toddlers is controversial. We have decided DD should have them because she is a booby addict and eats little solid food and I am hypoparathyroid which means I have trouble maintaining calcium and vitamin d levels. We figure that maybe we do fall into the group of people where kids will benefit from them.<br><br><br>
The problem is that these things are disgusting. The insert even recommends mixing them in something, but it would have to be a pretty big volume to hide the taste and I can't count on DD eating that much consistently. Any way to make them go down better?<br>

<p>I'd get a different brand.  Carlson D drops are available lots of places online (forgot to check if you're in the US) but they just taste mildly like coconut oil, which is the carrier oil, the serving size is 1 drop, and you choose from 400 IU, 1000 IU and 2,000 IU dosages. </p>

Yeah that -- Carlson's are nearly tasteless (and definitely not unpleasant, DS loves them) and with just one drop it's sooo much simpler, especially if your kid doesn't eat consistently!! I usually just put a drop on my nipple before he nurses. I got some at Whole Foods last year... this reminds me that I need to go buy another bottle!</p>
