Q.

Vi-Daylin

Hi

I have been giving my daughter (13 months) a daily dosage of 5ml Vi Daylin every morning around 8am (after breakfast). The reason I have been giving her Vi Daylin is my daughter has not been drinking milk since 6 months so her paeds suggested Vi Daylin. He did say however that as long as she gets 200ml of milk a day (whether in cerel, ice cream etc) there would be no need to give her the Vi Daylin. However for the last week, her appetite has deceased. She does not want to eat her cerel thus I started the Vi Daylinm again. The problem is that she still is not hungry enough to finish her cerel. Her lunch and supper goes down well. Is it possible for me to give her Vi Daylin twice a day?

THanks

You do not need to give her Vidaylin more than once daily.

Hey Doc

Can I give her it first thing in the morning (on an empty tummy). I'm hoping that,that will give her more of an appetite for her cerel.

Thanks
