WOODBRIDGE, ON, June 16 /CNW/ - Yesterday, the Food and Drug Administration in the United States alerted parents and caregivers that some conventional liquid vitamin D supplement products sold with 'eye droppers' could allow excessive dosing of vitamin D to infants. The eyedropper format relies on the dexterity of the caregiver and markings on the eyedropper to accurately measure 400 IU of conventional liquid vitamin D dose to infants.
Baby Ddrops(TM) brand liquid vitamin D uses a "Euro-dropper" rather than an eyedropper and represents an advancement to the traditional water-based formats for the following reasons:
- Baby Ddrops(TM) uses the "Euro-dropper" technology to deliver 400IU
in just one drop. The size of each drop is 0.03 mL containing the
daily-recommended vitamin D dose of 400 IU. The drop size is based on
surface tension and the stickiness between the oil formula and the
dropper mechanism, thus ensuring a consistent drop size every time.
- Baby Ddrops(TM) are designed to have one drop placed onto a clean
surface first (such as mother's nipple, clean finger or pacifier),
then licked off that clean surface, rather than dropped directly into
the baby's mouth. The "Euro-dropper" does not come in contact with
the baby, keeping the dispenser free of contamination, and clean
- By design, the "Euro-dropper" limits the amount of liquid dispensed
at any one given time, avoiding spilling, leaking and over-
dispensing. Each amber glass bottle comes complete with a special
mechanism on the bottle opening that permits a slower flow for more
controlled product dispensing. This method makes it easy to see that
just one drop is dispensed from the dropper onto a surface before the
baby takes the product.
- Baby Ddrops(TM) is sold in a 90-drop format, enough for a 3-month
supply. Ddrops also includes tamper evident caps and safety seals.
Ddrops(TM) Company is proud to offer this unique format once-daily vitamin D drop technology. All Ddrops(TM) brand products provide a concentrated purified vitamin D, providing a daily dose in each single drop.
