Enfamil D-Vi-Sol Liquid Vitamin D Supplement is a supplement for exclusively or partially breastfed infants and toddlers.

Product Features:

  • No artificial colors or flavors
  • Enfamil® is the #1 vitamin drops brand recommended by pediatricians

  • Rationale and Special Characteristics
    • Enfamil D-Vi-Sol provides 400 IU of vitamin D in one daily dose.

      The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends 400 IU of supplemental vitamin D per day beginning in the first days of life for all breastfed and partially breastfed infants who do not receive at least 1 L of infant formula per day1.

      Enfamil D-Vi-Sol does not contain ingredients derived from the most common food allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy or wheat.

  • Osmolality
    • When added to 2 fl oz of infant formula or breast milk, 1 mL of Enfamil D-Vi-Sol Liquid Vitamin D Supplement increases the osmolality by +115 mOsm/kg water2,*. If the resulting osmolality is higher than desired for a particular baby, an option is to add 0.5 mL of the supplement to the feeding twice per day.



      * A previous formulation was evaluated.
