So my dr said to start using this liquid drop vitamin, at 2 months. It tastes real bad! I even tried to put it in a bottle of milk, she wont take it. I feel bad just droping it in her mouth with the gross taste. What do you do, how else do I give it to her?

my doctor never mentioned anything about vitamans... but I have heard of this. Do you know if this applies if you are b___st feeding too.

When I was breasfeeding, I was told to give vitamin D supplement 1x daily. Only b___stfed mothers are suppose to do this apparently. He had to drink it and did not like probably because b___stmilk tastes way better.

My baby's doctor gave it to her too, I have not given it to her yet, she is now 3 months old I had it since she was 2 months old. I am scared to give it to her. I have a friend that gave it to her baby and he had an allergic reation to it. Is it bad that I am not giving it to her?

Only b___stfead babies need the vitamin D drops. Formula fed babies have all the iron and vitamins they need in the milk already. New Mommy - give it to your baby, chances are she wont have an allergic reaction.

I wonder why my dr. never mentioned these vitamen d drops...I need to ask the next time I take him to the dr.

I think they are called TriVisol or there are other ones called D-Visol. I think b___stfed babies need the TriVisol. (or whatever brand name you choose, as long as they have the 3 main vitamins... Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin D3)

chelsey are you in the US or in Canada? I think I asked you this already sorry.

You are probably giving her the Poly Vi Sol. Try the Tri Vi Sol. It doesn't taste as bad. I never had a problem with my daughter not taking it.

Trivisol has 3 main vitamins, Divisol has 2, and polyvisol has only one. An exclusively b___stfed baby needs the Trivisol.

I give my baby trivisol and she loves it. I started giving it to her when she was two weeks old htough, so that may be why. Sometimes she won't take it if she isn't hungry or just ate, but if I give it to her while she is hungry then she is okay.

Our pharmacist said if you b__w in the baby's nose while giving medicine, they have to swallow. I'm using formula, so I haven't had any personal experience with baby vitamins, but my mom said you should give them to the baby when the baby is undressed, because they cause stains on fabric that never come out.

Hi monica, I live in California too. My baby's pediatrician recommended me to give him poly vi sol/tri vi sol with iron, since
