Nordic Naturals Baby’s Dha, 2 -Ounce


In the first year of life, the human brain more than doubles its size. During this period of rapid growth, the brain is especially sensitive to nutrition, particularly the omega-3 DHA. DHA is the primary building block of brain tissue, and adequate intake is essential for proper brain development, and remains necessary throughout life to maintain brain health. Baby’s DHA is made from 100% Arctic cod livers— no fish body oils or synthetic additives are ever used—and is rich in both EPA and DHA, as well as containing healthy levels of natural vitamins A and D. This safe and effective formula supports the proper development of the brain, eyes, and nervous and immune systems, and is third-party tested for purity and freshness.

    I posted the review below for the Childrens Nordic Naturals version. But I thought it would be helpful here as well. So I am posting the review below. I know I started to have the big question of hey can I get the childrens one…and this is what I found out from having tried both and looking at the labels.

    We have had our adopted daughter since she was 7 months old. Not being able to breastfeed we wanted to give her as many positive dietary items as we could. Of course we could not do a controlled experiment but this has seemed to help her. She is developing well and she has no problem with taking this or the infant DHA Nordic Naturals at all. The developing great is very encouraging because she has a genetic deletion and her mom was malnourished and had no prenatal care. Our daughter was also underfed for the first 6 weeks plus of her life. It seemed she started doing more with vocalbulary and being interested in things after starting the DHA. Would she have anyway? I truly can’t say.

    After using the infant version I was curious about the Children’s version because per ounce this one is vastly better priced. So here is what I found. The label for the infant’s DHA lists the amount of DHA and EPA per 4 ml (a serving size is 1 to 4 ml). The Children’s DHA lists a serving size as 2.5 ml. When you correct you are getting the same amount of DHA and EPA per serving. But you get 8 ounces here as compared to 2 ounces. For way less than 4 times as much. What you are not getting is the higher levels of D3 in the infant. This one also has a strawberry taste that the infant does not. So if you are buying this for DHA and EPA, this is a much better per ounce price. I wish I had known that sooner.

    I suspect most people reading this review have done some research on DHA and/or EPA. If you are curious to try, I have heard nothing but good things about Nordic Naturals and as I said the Children’s can save you a lot of money over the Infant. The infant we put drops in her bottle or food. This one does not come with a dropper. It also does say check with a doctor for children less than 8 months. But the infant, ironically says 1 to 4 ml a day. If you use 1 to 4 ml of this a day you would be giving your infant no more or no less EPA and DHA than you would having bought the infant one.

    I have been feeding this to my 1 year old baby for a couple of weeks. My little one likes it. Even though the taste could be fishy for an adult (I tried a spoon of it), it seems the baby does not care.
    Another concern of mine was the radiation contamination from Fukushima accident. I spent sometime to do homework online on this issue. Finally I was convinced that this Nordic Naturals’ product, which is made from Norwegian Arctic Cod, should be safe. Norwegian Arctic cod’s habitat is roughly between Greenland and Barents Sea, an isolated area from Pacific waters, which makes it very unlikely to be contaminated. I also checked online for any report about fish radiation contamination. No source points to Norwegian Cod. So, though some seafood is contaminated, this product is relatively safe.

    Nordics Naturals baby’s DHA is pretty awesome. I bought this product a month ago for my almost 4 months baby and have never looked back. It is not as smelly as some people claim. Since my son had not yet started solids and hadnt formed any strong likings towards taste, he adjusted to the taste of the drops pretty quickly. He scrunched up his face the first couple of times but he drank it straight. No gagging or throwing up. His body definitely does not give out a fishy odor. Its really quiet a mild smell. And we are Indian vegetarians. Not sure how it has affected my baby as of now, but he is hitting his milestones way way ahead of babies his age. It might be just him though. I figure, it cant hurt him.
