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 400 IU vitamin D drops per day.
However, a recently published study showed that mothers who took 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 One contains 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 either TheraNatal Lactation product.
Q. Can I start taking TheraNatal Lactation One while I am pregnant?
No, it is not generally recommended. TheraNatal Lactation One 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 One?
TheraNatal Lactation One contains 300 mg of DHA 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 One 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 One 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 other nutritional supplements along with TheraNatal Lactation One?
Yes. Certain other supplements can be taken along with TheraNatal Lactation One (such as calcium). However, do not take any type of multivitamin, or other prenatal while taking TheraNatal Lactation One.
Q: Can I take TheraNatal Lactation One if I'm allergic to shellfish?
Yes. There is no shellfish in TheraNatal Lactation One. If you have reacted to radiocontrast material or antiseptics which contain iodine, you may still be able to safely take TheraNatal Lactation One 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. Does TheraNatal Lactation One interact with any prescription medications or other supplements?
Yes. TheraNatal Lactation One may affect the absorption of certain prescription medications.
Check with your doctor due if you take the following medications:
Thiazide diuretics (hydrochlorothiazide)
Do not take TheraNatal Lactation One with other multivitamins or prenatal vitamins. If you take a single-nutrient supplement (such as calcium), check your total intake from all supplements, including TheraNatal Lactation One, to ensure you do not take more than the safe upper limit of the nutrient.
