One of the downsides to living in this lovely northern country is the lack of sunshine in the winter. Babies need to be given Vitamin D drops because it does not carry through the breast milk. We grudgingly bought the only two we could find on the supermarket shelves, but have never felt very comfortable with the artificial colours, flavours, and sugar in them.
Today we stopped in at Finlandia Pharmacy and to look for what would hopefully be more natural Vitamin D drops. How great is this? The pharmacist made up a vial of Vitamin D suspended in flax oil – right there, on the spot. Woo hoo!!! No more artificial flavours and colours! We have to keep the bottle in the fridge, because it has no preservatives, but that’s not a big deal. I’m so glad we stopped in there!
