No vitamin D drops

To be completely honest part of this is because I kept forgetting to give them to my daughter. It was hard enough to remember everything else that comes with being a new mom! But I also don't think they're all that necessary. I read that they recommend them because in rare cases breastfed babies can suffer from iron deficiency and vitamin d helps with iron absorption. Since there is no way to tell who is at risk for it they tell everyone to supplement. It can't hurt so better safe then sorry right?

New studies have shown that while breast milk contains less iron then formula it is absorbed 8x more efficiently then the iron in formula. Plus humans survived without vitamin d drops for a pretty long time. That's why I didn't stress about it and my daughter seems just fine
