Enfamil D-Vi-Sol, Liquid Vitamin D Supplement
These are pretty bad. My husband tasted them and said they are super bitter. The included dropper is nice but the dose level of 1 ml is pretty ridiculous when other brands do just 1 drop. My son would vomit these up (like entire stomach contents included not just a little spit up) every time I tried to administer. We tried a bunch of different ways before giving up and switching brands since this one was recommended by our pediatrician.
These were recommended by our pediatrician, because strictly breastfed babies need a vitamin D supplement. The liquid is a yellowish orange clear liquid and come with a clearly labeled plastic syringe for easy dosage. Our baby liked the taste of these cherry flavored drops, so it was easy giving it to him every day. We have tried some other Organic brands but they stain terribly if your baby spits up at all.
I am not a fan of these drops at all! My daughter HATES them! She used them as a newborn because she was strictly breastfed and now as she gets older, she refuses to take them. She will not even touch the milk if it has these drops in them. They are extremely over priced too! This is definitely a no go!
I like that this product can be given directly to my daughter mixed into her formula. I do NOT like the price. My doctor said since my daughter is primarily breastfed that we needed this vitamin for her. Because of that I will grit my teeth and accept the price.
I bought this for my newborn. Pediatrician suggested it since I'm exclusively breastfeeding and baby needs the extra vitamins daily. I take postnatal vitamins too so when I'd forget to give my baby this vitamin I didn't feel too bad. I tried it myself just to see what I was giving my baby and it's not an awful taste. Like cherry but you don't taste it right away it's just an after taste and quite strong. Despite what my doctor said I think I'm done using this product. As a new paren't it's just one more chore to give to your baby daily and I don't actually think they need it. My baby liked it though. Never had a problem giving this to him just became a lot of work and it was very sticky.
My pediatrician recommended these drops for my exclusively breastfed baby. He takes this fine out of the dropper but it is a little messy. This has the consistency of syrup and is just as sticky. It is very affordable.
Just days after I started giving this product to my son, he started experiencing EXTREMELY painful gas cramps that kept him up at night and caused him to cry non-stop. Family and friends suggested that perhaps he was just a colicky baby, but I decided to stop giving him the drop after reading some reviews online, and the gas and cramping completely stopped. Because parents are encouraged to give their breastfed babies a Vitamin D supplement, I researched a different brand and started giving him an all natural Vitamin D drop that I found on Amazon (made by Three Trees LLC). He has responded well to it and it makes me feel great that I'm not giving him a product with so many artificial ingredients like this one. There are so many unnecessary additives in this product, such as caramel coloring, that I would encourage you to look at natural alternatives even if your child doesn't experience the same side effects that mine did! My son's pediatrician has even started recommending this alternative brand to parents instead of the Enfamil one after examining the ingredients himself and having several parents complain of adverse effects from it
Doctor recommended giving a vitamin D supplement to my exclusive breastfeed daughter, this was NOT the product for us. not only does it take a huge amount to give it to her (a dropper full, as compared to one drop for other brands) it also was a mess. i just felt like it would be better for me to increase my vitamin D intake to help it pass on through my milk
Worst product I've used. The doctor told me to give these to baby because he is breastfed and vitamin d doesn't come through the milk as well. The first day they caused gas and some mucus spit up. The next day they caused so much mucus our baby almost choked to death. He couldn't breath, was turning red/purple, sweating, and I had to aspirate his little mouth to get all of the mucus out. It was a horrible experience. I stopped using these and the mucus went away. Never again. I'll go the old fashioned route and make sure baby gets plenty of sunlight.
I HATE these drops. I gave them to my son for two days and he would scream every time so I decided to try a drop on my tongue and it was the most disguising flavor plus it made my tongue feel almost numb! But Mommys Bliss, they make a few different supplements with vitamin D that only take a few drops and not a whole syringe like this garbage.
Q & A
Will There ever be a better tasting vitamin drop.
Does this upset your baby's tummy? I have tried it with my daughter and she spits up a pretty big amount, which she usually doesn't, after taking this. I'm wondering if it's related.
How long, and starting when should a baby be using this?
How long should vitamin D drops be used? (i.e. - how old should a baby be when you STOP giving it to them)
Does this dramatically change the flavor of the milk you put it in? And if so does your baby take it?
