Pediatrician said we need baby vitamin drops for Vitamin D and Iron. I was just going to order Enfamil Polyvisol off of Amazon, but reviews said the smell and taste are horrible. Anyone have any recommendations??

The straight up Vitamin D Enfamil tastes fine--we never had any trouble getting that one down. As far as I know that's all they need??? Tiny babies have plenty of iron stores for the first six months or even more.

The Polyvisol is indeed icky--it's the vitamin A and iron components that are gross tasting I think.

We used the enfamil ones with DD. We snuck it into a corner of her mouth when she was bfeeding. She would grimace a bit but go back to drinking right away so we never had a problem. I bought the iron ones since my entire family is ridiculously anemic. Figured she could use a boost from early on....

Honestly. I've never used them. Personally my kids have been fine with just breast milk.

We use vit. D drops that are prescribed by her pediatrician. I was really adamant about giving them to DD1 because the sun doesn't shine much here and I've read lots of studies that point to vit. D deficiency as being the cause of many diseases. The doc has never said anything about iron though.

Our pedi doesn't recommend any vitamin drops. We live in Texas so the sun is plentiful (putting it mildly) and vitamin D deficiency is unlikely unless you are a hermit!

We live in Texas too and my pedi recommended Enfamil's D-Vi-Sol and recommends 2ml which is double the dose on the box. Seems like a lot! I think you only have to do Vit D if you are BF though, formula has it added already.
