WOODBRIDGE, ON, June 17 /CNW/ - Earlier today, Health Canada also issued
an information update pertaining to the topic of Proper Dosing of Liquid
Vitamin D Supplements in Infants. (http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ahc-asc/media/advisories-avis/_2010/2010_107-eng.php)
Two days ago, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United
States alerted parents and caregivers that some conventional liquid
vitamin D supplements 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.
Ddrops Company applauds this further attention on the matter. Chris
Temovsky, President, Ddrops Company cited, " We are pleased to see
attention being drawn to proper dosing of vitamin D supplements used for
infants. We designed Baby Ddrops from the beginning to allow for safe,
easy and accurate administration of this important vitamin supplement".
Temovsky went on to explain, " Doing away with the older style 'eye
dropper' format and utilizing our unique delivery system and use method
offers a significant advance Ddrops Company is very proud to have been
delivering to Canadians for several years now."
Baby Ddrops™ brand liquid vitamin D does not use an eye-dropper and is
an advancement to the older 'eye-dropper' formats for the following
Baby Ddrops™ uses the "Eurodropper" technology to deliver 400IU in
just one drop. The size of each drop is 0.03 mL containing 400 IU of
vitamin D. 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™ are designed to be put 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 "Eurodropper" does not come in contact with the baby, keeping the
dispenser free of contamination, and clean between uses.
By design, the "Eurodropper" 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 cap on the
bottle that slows flow for more controlled product dispensing. This
method makes it easy to see that just one drop is dispensed from the
dropper before the baby takes the product.
Baby Ddrops™ is sold in a 90 drop format, enough for a 3 month
supply. Ddrops™ also includes tamper evident caps and safety seals.
Ddrops Company is proud to offer this unique format once-daily vitamin D
drop technology. All Ddrops™ brand products offer concentrated
purified vitamin D3, providing a daily dose in each single
