Why extra vitamin K for babies?
Vitamin K plays an important role in blood clotting. The body makes vitamin K in the intestine itself, but in babies this is not enough. Shortly after birth, babies get all the standard vitamin K administered by the midwife or obstetrician.
Human milk does not provide enough in the necessary amount of vitamin K. Therefore, babies who are wholly or largely-feeding, during the first 3 months of extra vitamin K needed. To bottle feed is added vitamin K.
The Health recommends 150 mcg of vitamin K per day for infants who are breastfed from day 8 to 12 weeks. This quantity is in a daily dose of 5 drops of Davitamon vitamin K Oil. Just before the breastfeeding may be administered in drops to the baby with a spoon or by dropping on the nipple.
