Vitamin D overdose through breastmilk?

I want to up my Vitamin D intake to protect from the flu, but I am breastfeeding my 8 mo old daughter.


Can she receive too much Vitamin D through my breastmilk?

I currently take 800 IU's a day

Vitamin D and Breast Milk

I am currently nursing my four month old and have recently began taking Vitamin D3 supplements, 5000 IU every three days per the dosage instructions on the bottle.

About how much of that is my infant receiving from my breast milk and if I decided to increase the supplements to once daily, could too much come out in the breast milk (since infants don't need as much as an adult)?

Vitamin D and lactation

by Stephanie
(West Chicago, IL)

I have a 2 y/o and a 3 month old. I breastfed my 2 y/o for 1 yr and have been nursing my 3 month old now. I had a Vitamin D level (25 hydroxy vitamin D) checked and was told it was normal (I think it was 60). I am taking a prenatal vitamin (unsure of D amount due to samples not listing), 1000 mg Ca plus D (700 iu D combined) and 2000 IU of D3 every day.

I also drink 2-3 glasses of milk a day and spend at lest 1 hr per day outside in warmer weather (I live in IL). should I be taking more D3 daily to equal up to 6400 IU? Thanks!
