Q. How much vitamin D do I need while I'm breastfeeding?
Typically, the amount of vitamin D in breast milk is too low to prevent vitamin D deficiency in exclusively breastfed infants. As a result, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) currently recommends that breastfed infants receive a supplement of 10 mcg (400 IU) vitamin D drops per day. However, one study found that mothers who took 160 mcg (6,400 IU) of vitamin D3 from a dietary supplement each day provided enough vitamin D to their babies through their breast milk alone.* TheraNatal Lactation Complete contains 160 mcg (6,400 IU) of vitamin D3, which eliminates the need for infant vitamin D drops.* Do not give your baby vitamin D drops while taking TheraNatal Lactation Complete.
Q. Can I start taking TheraNatal Lactation Complete while I am pregnant?
No, it is not generally recommended. TheraNatal Lactation Complete is specifically formulated to take while breastfeeding. For example, the amount of iron is too low to meet the increased iron needs late in the third trimester, and the amount of vitamin D may be too high for some pregnant women.
Q. What is the source of DHA in TheraNatal Lactation Complete?
TheraNatal Lactation Complete contains 300 mg of DHA and 60 mg of EPA from pharmaceutical-grade omega-3 fish oil. This high-quality fish oil is molecularly distilled and highly purified. Every batch of DHA in TheraNatal Lactation Complete is tested for freedom from contaminants such as mercury, lead, and PCBs by the International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS) Program. The DHA in TheraNatal Lactation Complete has received the highest rating of 5 stars from IFOS, which indicates exceptional quality, purity, and safety.
If you are allergic to fish, the highly purified fish oil in the softgel may not be safe for you and you should consult your allergist.
Q: Can I take TheraNatal Lactation Complete if I'm allergic to shellfish?
Yes. There is no shellfish in TheraNatal Lactation Complete. If you have reacted to radiocontrast material or antiseptics which contain iodine, you may still be able to safely take TheraNatal Lactation Complete even though it contains iodine. These reactions are commonly confused with sensitivity to iodine or shellfish, though studies have shown that they are not related.
Q. Can I take other nutritional supplements along with TheraNatal Lactation Complete?
Yes. Certain other supplements can be taken along with TheraNatal Lactation Complete (such as calcium). However, do not take any type of multivitamin, or other prenatal while taking TheraNatal Lactation Complete.
