Described in detail

Detailed Answer:
Hello

The dose of Ultra D3 in breast babies is 2-3 drops a day. It can be taken any time, with or without milk. It contains vitamin D that is recommended alongwith breast milk especially in cold countries like Canada. In XXXXXXX Vitamin D is mainly derived from exposure to sunlight.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
