Tips to administer Ddrops with a fussy infant

January 13, 2020

Giving anything to an infant every day can be challenging. You may have an active baby, and there are times when your infant is fussy, Thankfully Baby Ddrops® is designed to make administration easy.

Baby Ddrops® is specifically designed for breastfed babies. If you are breastfeeding simply place just one drop of Ddrops® right where baby feeds. When they latch on and start to suck they will get their vitamin D easily. If this is a bit challenging, try placing the tiny drop onto a clean fingertip and then let the baby suck the finger for a few seconds.

Ddrops® products are should be dropped onto a clean surface first rather than dropped directly into the mouth. This safe method prevents the Euro Ddropper™ from becoming contaminated by avoidable contact with the mouth. This method also allows for easy monitoring and visibility of the number of drops being dispensed prior to a child taking in the product. Most babies prefer liquid so because the drop is such a small amount (0.028mL) and based in a fractionated coconut oil it makes it nearly impossible for the baby to spit it out once it has been consumed.

Still having trouble? Try some of these tips:

  • Babies need a liquid administration. Once you have the drop on your finger try placing it on the inside of your baby’s cheek, and it should be swallowed without a struggle.
  • A shallow plastic medicine teaspoon is calibrated which may make it easier to use than a regular teaspoon. This is available for purchase at most pharmacies.
  • Use the upper lip sweep, sweeping the spoon against the inside of your baby’s lip as you pull the spoon from your baby’s mouth.
  • Use your middle or index finger to pull out the corner of the baby’s mouth, making a pocket in the cheek.
  • Place just one drop on a clean fingertip or spoon and place it inside the cheek pocket.
  • If your baby is starting to eat solids, simply place just one drop onto a clean spoonful of baby food.
  • We do not recommend placing the drop into a bottle, because if the feed isn’t finished, the drop may get left behind.

We hope these tips help you to ensure that your baby is getting the vitamin D they need, just one drop at a time! If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact healthcare@vitaminddrops.com. We will be more than happy to help with any questions you may have.
