Our Ped recommends Vit D for little ones. I have the drops that are 1000iu and I do them when I remember.

Re: Vit D for 1 year old

I'm in the Pac NW and we give our 1 year old a Vitamin D supplement. Our pediatrician is super crunchy and very wary of things like tylenol and certain vaccines, and even flouride. But around here SAD is so common that they strongly recommend Vit d.

We do a drop of this stuff a day. Super easy.

Re: Vit D for 1 year old

We're in the Seattle area and our pediatric naturopath suggests we give our 2 year old 400 iu/day. We also use the Carlson Baby Ddrops, easy with one drop per day.

Thanks! I'll get the Carlson baby drops until I can find a Ped to get a Rx.

I also never had vitamin D supplementation as a child and suffer from depression starting at a young age. I spent a ton of time outside. Not sure if the lack of vit d is causing depression, but I believe prevention is key. When you know better, you do better.
Thanks again!
