Will cod liver oil help infants sleep?


Answer by  alanschech (256)

Cod Liver has vitamin D which can help children sleep better. It also has benefits for sugar level and blood pressure.


Answer by  MelindaS (1694)

No, you should definitely not give cod liver oil to your baby. It can cause diarrhea and stomach cramping, not to mention it is not nutritionally appropriate for an infant. If your child is under 4 months old, you should not expect him to sleep longer than a few hours at a time. Later, using a routine helps with sleeping.

There is no conclusive research that suggests cod liver oil will help an infant to sleep better. Although cod liver oil has many health benefits, no supplements should be given to an infant unless specified by a pediatrician.

Most probably, it has this function. It is heard that this oil helps to adopt calcium and supplement vitamin A D. Usually babies have this after three month to keep healthy, but be sure to have it in proper dose.
