When I had my first child, I felt overwhelmed with all the things I needed to learn about in order to raise him naturally. There was breastfeeding and introducing solids, there were baby skin care products and diapering choices, and of course there were choices to make about vaccines, medications, and nutritional supplements. The list could go on and on for miles!
Seeing how Judah was born in May, I had to decide fairly quickly what to do about sun exposure and whether or not to use sunscreen.
Since he was so little, I knew I wouldn’t be exposing him to a lot of direct sunlight, but I also knew that it would be good for him to be outside a good bit, even if it was in the shade. I’d read that sunscreen wasn’t recommended for infants, mostly due to the chemicals, but what about homemade sunscreen? Would that be okay? And what about vitamin d? Would he get enough of it from the little sun he was exposed to and through breastmilk, or did I need to supplement with a vitamin d supplement?
And so, my quest for information on vitamin d began.
