yes. If it's vi sol(made by enfamil I presume) it has more than just D in it but yes it could cause a tummy ache.(I am no expert though as I never gave it to my kids)

I personally wouldn't use it but if you look at the box/bottle  i bet money there's more than just vit d in it  & thatn could be upsetting baby's tummy. What *I* would & have done instead is to  take baby outside for 30 minutes a day, doesn't even have to be in direct sunlight can be sitting by a window with the curtains open on a cloudy day. (no suncreen though) That is how you get the vit d you both need. IF you choose to use the suppliment I would go to a health food store &  get one called  Just D.(or one similar)

Yep, like pp said, just get some sunlight. Take a walk, sit in a sunny spot on the floor to play, anything like that.

If you feel the need to give drops give carlsons brand. The vi sol stuff has preservatives coloring and nasty stuff. Basically it changed her virgin gut so it hurts.

The D is necessary if you're north of, say, North Carolina, you're darker skinned, or you're not outside much. But I'd also use Carlsson's or Just D.

You CANNOT get vitamin D by sitting by a window. Your skin needs UVB rays to make vitamin D, and only a tiny fraction of UVB rays penetrate glass.

Clouds also greatly reduce UVB rays.

Agreed. Also the amount you need to give of carlsons is one tasteless little drop. Rather than 1 ml in a dropper.
