Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for babies. Since sun exposure isn’t recommended for babies, supplementing with vitamin D3 drops is an excellent way to make sure your little one is getting enough of this important vitamin. The American Academy of Pediatrics and Taiwan Pediatric Association both recommend that all babies receive 400 IU of vitamin D3 daily—easily met with just one drop of our BABE D3.
Sources of vitamin D...
Vitamin D is not found naturally in many commonly consumed foods. However, both plant and animal based sources of vitamin D exist. Fatty fish, such as salmon, and mackerel are the main sources of naturally occurring vitamin D. There is also a small amount of vitamin D found in egg yolks, pork, deli meats, and beef liver. These only provide approximately 30-88 IU of vitamin D, while the daily recommendation is set at 600 IU per day. Mushrooms are the only plant food found in nature that can synthesize vitamin D. However, edible mushroom (such as white button, crimini, portabello) in most retail grocery stores are not likely to contain enough vitamin D2 (under 20 IU per 100 g).
It will take 17 sardines, 16 eggs, 4 glasses of milk, or 116 pieces of cheese a day to receive 400 IU of Vitamin D, which equals to ONE DROP of BABE D3.
Vitamin D is also called “the sunshine vitamin” because Vitamin D is made in the skin when it’s exposed to sunlight. However, the ability to synthesis Vitamin D could be affected by many reasons, such as season, weather and cloud, skin color…etc. SPF 8 sunscreen has been reported to easily reduce production of vitamin D by 95 %.
Advantages of babe d3...
Also known as cholecalciferol, vitamin D3 is the form of vitamin D that our bodies naturally make from sunlight, and the form that’s easiest to absorb. Our best BABE D3 sourced from natural lanolin, and it comes in a carrier oil of purest medium chain triglyceride oil (MCT oil) with 99% of C8 and C10. MCT oil is pure, stable, and odorless. Use the included measured dropper to add a single drop to your baby’s breast milk or formula, or as instructed by your pediatrician or healthcare provider.
Vitamin D supplement recommendation...
The blood test that measures vitamin D status is called a 25(OH)D serum test. In light of many recent vitamin D research, there is a growing consensus that the optimal range for 25(OH)D levels is above 75–80 nmol/L for most people.
Even as we learn more about vitamin D’s roles in nearly all aspects of health; however, data suggests that most of us don’t get enough vitamin D. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data shows that the number of persons with levels below 75 nmol/L nearly doubled from 1994 to 2004. Almost 80% of the 2004 survey population had levels below 75 nmol/L, while close to 75% had levels below 50 nmol/L.
Back in 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doubled the daily values for vitamin D, which are based largely on daily reference intakes from the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies. In 2016 the FDA doubled the daily values for vitamin D again—from 400 IU (10 mcg) to 800 IU (20 mcg) for adults and children over 4.

Taipei 新奇太太的日本戲虎記 @hsinchi.tiger
After giving birth to my first child 透瓦 four years ago, this year I have my second baby. I felt everything has improved so much during the four years, such as breastmilk collectors, baby slings and wraps, baby bathtubs, etc. 透瓦 didn’t get the chances to use these magical stuff!!
On the last day before returning to Japan, I took 楷楷 back to Dianthus MFM Clinic to get vaccinated. I had mixed feelings because both of my children were born in Dianthus. It might be the time for me to end the business of giving birth; I experienced some kind of feelings of graduation. Very likely, I will never come back to Dianthus again for the same reason (another birth). Compared the differences between the four years, Dianthus has changed and improved as well, now the clinic provides more services, and it seems more people come here :).
I have a friend working in Dianthus MFM Clinic; she was very caring and thoughtful during my pregnancy and throughout the postpartum period. She gave me DHA supplementations and suggested vitamin D to my newborn baby. When I took my one-month-old baby back to Dianthus for a regular check, the pediatrician also asked if I have given my baby vitamin D supplement. I then realized the importance of vitamin D, and thanked for my considerate friend for helping me, a lazy mom. I also felt kind of sorry and lousy because I didn’t have this knowledge at all when 透瓦 was little. When I thought I am a veteran (not a first-time mom anymore), then I found out still so much to learn…hahahahaha!

Linkou Gorden’s Mother
Since Gordon’s birth, he has been my focus. From nutrition, education to everything in life, we wanted to give him the best of the best, so he can grow up healthy. Golden is 8 years old now, and we still insist that everything we provide for him has his best interests at heart. Babe D3 is the nutritional supplement we have carefully selected and still continue to let Gordon take as the daily supplements. I purchased some kind of US-imported supplemental brand with 360 drops before I was introduced to Babe D3. Not sure if it was due to the ingredient of olive oil, the mouth of the bottle often had a taste of oil. Meanwhile, I worried about how well the preservation and also felt it was not that easy to drip while feeding Gordon. Later, after being introduced by a nutritionist, I started to use Babe D3. It is much easy to drip and without that taste of oil; moreover, the stability of the product quality has proven to be good. Since then, Babe D3 has been our top choice for Gordon. I hope my baby can grow up happy, healthy and fast.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF "BABE D3" ?
BABE D3 is extracted from natural lanolin, and purest medium chain triglyceride oil (MCT oil). This natural combined formula guarantees the quality of vitamin D. It is colorless and tasteless, so the baby’s acceptance is high. In addition, BABE D3 does not contain any chemical materials, such as artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. BABE D3 is also proven by its origin – Canada, it has licensed by Health Canada to ensure its quality.
HOW TO PROPERLY USE "BABE D3" ?
The base oil selected by BABE D3 is medium chain triglyceride, which has high stability, good fluidity and moderate dripping speed. By putting the bottle vertically, you can drop 1 drop.
WHY VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTATION MATTERS FOR BABIES ?
Newborns are rarely taken out to a sunbath, and his/her vitamin D supplementation can only be obtained from breast milk or formula. If the mother has higher vitamin D levels, her breastfed baby would receive higher vitamin D levels through the breast milk. In order to prevent the baby from having vitamin D deficiency, there are two things to be aware of: first of all, the mother must supplement sufficient vitamin D herself. Secondly, according to the recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Taiwan Pediatrics Association, to give the newborn vitamin D supplementation 400 IU daily.
WHAT ARE THE COMMON VITAMIN D PRODUCTS FOR INFANTS AND YOUNG CHILDREN ON THE MARKET ? WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES ?
Vitamin D products commonly found on the market can be roughly classified into two categories:
1). Liquid Drop:
Good for babies over 0 years old. Liquid drops are easy to use and can be dripped on the mother’s nipple, pacifier, or added into formula milk and complementary food. It’s ease-of-use, suitable for mommy to take at the same time as well. Plus, to adjust the dose is simple.
2). Soft Candy:
Only suitable for children over 2 years old, to avoid the risk of swallowing. However, soft candy products usually contain sugar and are easy to cause tooth decay, so this type of supplements are generally less recommended to children.
IS THERE NO VITAMIN D IN BREAST MILK ?
Breast milk provides all the vitamins a baby needs except for vitamin D. The vitamin D content is just too little to support what a baby needs. Therefore, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Taiwan Pediatrics Association have recommended to give the newborn vitamin D supplementation 400 IU daily.
AFTER STARTING COMPLEMENTARY FEEDING, DO BABIES STILL NEED TO SUPPLEMENT VITAMIN D ?
After a baby reaches 6 months old, gradually try a variety of complementary foods, adding vitamin D supplement is still necessary. The vitamin D content in the food is not high; hence, having complementary food does not affect the baby to receive the supplemental vitamin D.
CAN YOU GET ENOUGH VITAMIN D FROM SUNLIGHT ?
Vitamin D can be synthesized in the bare skin upon exposure to UVB rays from the sun. However, there are several problems: First, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that babies within 6 months should not be exposed to sunlight directly. Because baby’s skin is very delicate; when expose to the sun improperly, it is easy to cause skin burns. Meanwhile, if the sun directly hit baby’s eyes, it is also easy to cause harm, the risk is high. For age more than 6 months, you need to pay attention to sun protection, such as avoiding strong UV rays, applying sunscreen, wearing long-sleeve trousers, and wearing wide-brimmed hats. Secondly, it is difficult to control the amount of vitamin D obtained from the sun; plus, the sun protection measures, air pollution, the sunshine intensity and other factors would all affect the effect. Therefore, although it is necessary for the baby to have proper outdoor activities to obtain certain amounts of vitamin D, it is not suggested to rely on the sun to supplement the vitamin D, in case of vitamin D deficiency.
WHY IS D3 THE MOST COMMON DIETARY FORM, NOT D2 ?
In fact, vitamin D is a big family; the most important forms used by the body are D2 and D3. Nutrition experts say that D3 is better than D2 in improving vitamin D levels. Vitamin D3 is currently the best option for dietary and nutritional supplements. The ingredients contained in the vitamin D supplements on the market could be animal D3 or botanical D2, so please pay attention to the label when purchasing. In general, D3’s activity is much better than D2. Therefore, D3 should be considered as a priority when using as supplements.
CAN TOO MUCH VITAMIN D HURT YOU ?
Taking extremely high doses of vitamin D3 must be under the supervision of medical professionals. In general, we cannot supplement more vitamin D than the following amount:
1). 0-6 months, 1000 IU/day
2). 7-12 months, 1500 IU/day
3). 1-3 years old, 2500 IU/day
4). 4-8 years old, 3000 IU/day
5). Children and adults over 8 years old, 4000 IU/day
6). 4000 IU/day for pregnant and breastfeeding women
Under normal circumstances, giving your baby 400 IU of vitamin D, plus regular outdoor activities and diet, there should be no side effects.
