hi prachi, 400 IU of Vit D should be given per day is what I have read. there are various syrups available. some have 400 IU/ml and some have 400 IU/ drop. depending on the syrup the dose will differ. it's better to check with the ped who will prescribe appropriately

Hi Prachi, my paediatrician suggested 1ml. Also my suggestion is we get vita d3 mainly in sunlight. so may be after 6months you can take your baby out for a walk in the morning. Also please make sure it doesn't affect baby eyes.
