Yes: Almost all babies are very sensitive to bright light in the first weeks of life. They will prefer to open their eyes more in a dimly lit room. This does not indicate that their is anything wrong with your child. By 6-8 weeks of age, your baby should be more alert, awake and interactive, even in well lit areas.

Dr. Susan Wingo
Endocrinology 33 years experience
1500 mg: 1500 mg is the recommended calcium intake for women with low estrogen levels, including women who have gone through menopause, had a hysterectomy with ovaries removed, or are taking meds like Arimidex that lower estrogen levels. Because vitamin d is necessary to absorb calcium, taking a 1000-2000 iu of vitamin d3 is a good idea as well.
