You are correct – if you take enough vitamin D daily (about 6000 IU), your baby should get enough D through your milk. It is very important to get a daily dose, since it is the pre-converted vitamin D3 that goes into the milk, and this form breaks down quickly. Making sure your breastmilk has enough vitamin D in it for your baby will also give you the added benefit of getting much-needed vitamin D for yourself.
Thank you, and congratulations!
