Vitamin D deficiency
Hi , my baby is 7 months old and i'm giving him D3 HD vit D3 drops- 2 drops daily as recommended by his pediatrician but on the bottle its written to give 1 ml daily to infants/ children. Also he sweats a lot at the back of his head while sleeping or laying down on his back, when i asked some other paediatrician , he told me that it is beacuse of Vit D deficiency. What should i do? Should i get him checked for vit d deficiency ? I'm giving him VitD drops since birth as recommended by his paed. I'm really worried, as i recently shifted to a different city and don't want to risk going to a hospital in this covid time. Please help me what should i do?

Vitamin D Drops dose is 400iu per day upto child s 1st birthday. Don't panic and as of now no need to do vitamin d levels. Just start the dose of 1 ml per day from today itself and at the time of child s next vaccination ask your pediatrician to look for signs of vitamin d deficiency
