Vitamin D plays an essential role in calcium absorption and bone health.
It’s true that exposure to the sun’s rays provides vitamin D. However, direct sunshine isn’t recommended for babies. Because of this, you have to find another way to fulfill their vitamin D needs.
Your healthcare professional will help you determine whether your baby needs a vitamin D supplement. If so, you can find the necessary supplements at your drug store.
Your drug insurance plan should cover vitamin D supplements if you have a prescription from your doctor.
