Re: vitamin drops

This the the reason per my ped they prescribe vitamins to EBF infants. Vitamin D. Some infants do not get enough sun exposure, and need more D to help there bodies properly use calcium. Rickets can become a problem (it's a bone issue from what I understand) as a result. He said, however, he has never seen Rickets in a fair child, only in dark babies. This is because there bodies have more pigment, and block more of the suns rays. We declined the vitamins, and he was fine with that.
