Vitamin D to drink or not to drink, kids

Children are the flowers of life is a hackneyed phrase, but it fits in perfectly with the theme of my current topic. If children are flowers, then parents are gardeners who grow these flowers by watering them with love, care and affection, feeding them with fertilizers, i.e. with vitamins.

In the clinic

Our daughter was born on the first of June. All summer, we regularly went to the clinic, weighed, measured height and were happy with our centimeters and kilograms.

In September, at the next reception, the doctor examined the child and issued her conclusion: Wiped the back of her head, maybe rickets, from September to June every day, let’s drop by drop of vitamin D.

The nurse wrote the name of the drug Akvadetrim on a piece of paper. So we were sent home.

To drink or not to drink is the question.

I didn’t start to run to the pharmacy, but decided to first read the information on the Internet about rickets and vitamin D, to talk with my mom’s friends who have children older than our daughter.

From the information on the Internet, I learned that the worst consequences from an overdose of fat-soluble vitamins A and D. I also read a bunch of terrible pictures and negative reviews about Aquadetrim.

But the wiped daughter’s back of the head did not let me sleep well. What if rickets? Most of all heard about the husband was worried. He walked almost all day in silence, but in the evening he issued: They have rickets … Brains!

Having told about my fears to one familiar mom, I heard that almost all children have their heads wiped out and there is even a picture in her family album in which the husband and the newborn son have the same bald heads.

Finally, she advised to see Dr. Komarovsky’s video about vitamin D and rickets.

Do not drink and that’s why

The video, however, turned out to be informative. After seeing it, I finally decided not to give the child Akvadetrim.

The following factors influenced my decision:

The daughter is breastfed, she gets a portion of vitamin D with milk. But those babies who are bottle-fed also get vitamin D with food. Now it is contained in all the milk mixtures in the required amount.

We regularly walk in fresh air for thirty minutes to three hours, depending on the weather. Since we do not live outside the Arctic Circle and we always have sunlight, even in cloudy weather, after thirty minutes on the street, the child receives the necessary dose of vitamin.

The internal organs of the child are not yet fully formed, so why load the immature liver with excess chemistry, even with the best of intentions. It is better to let my daughter, when she grows up, load her liver with a glass of tea for her mother’s health. 😉

Now our neck is overgrown with hair, our daughter is crawling, she sits down, tries to stand and walk herself. Looking at her, I believe that I made the right decision.

But each child is different, and we all live in different conditions, so that everyone must compare all the risks on his own and decide whether his child needs vitamins. And this was my experience.

Did you give your child vitamin D? What influenced your decision on this issue?
