No Vitamin D in breast milk..
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

If you are taking 5000 IU's every 3 days, your baby is getting ZERO vitamin D. Studies show that unless you are taking between 4000 to 6000 IU's per day that your baby will continue to get ZERO.

But the BEST way to ensure that your baby is getting enough Vitamin D is to get both your levels done. It is debatable whether your baby will get any vitamin D at all if you are severely deficient- because even 5000 IU's will not be enough to bring up your levels if you are SEVERELY deficient.

So, I HIGHLY recommend that you get a vitamin D test for the both of you and judge how much vitamin D you need from there. By guessing and potentially getting your baby too little vitamin D, you are potentially setting him up for a LIFETIME of illnesses. Read my post on Getting Enough Vitamin D During Pregnancy to see how truly important this subject is.

Please don't skip this step.

Just because you are 'young and healthy' and you get 'plenty' of sun does NOT mean that you get enough vitamin D - or any at all really. Nearly everyone who writes me claims that they are 'healthy' and get 'plenty of sun', yet many have ultra- low Vitamin D levels.
