REALLY hard to say...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Stephanie,

That's REALLY REALLY hard to say without you giving me an actual level. If your level REALLY is a 60 (and please include UNITS- it should say either ng/ml or nm/L) then it's likely that you are fine and getting vitamin d to your baby.

But I question your level of 60. Since you live in the north and you gave birth around April, you wouldn't have had any Vitamin D from sun all winter- and the amount of vitamin D that you are reporting to me is at MOST 4000 IU's per day, I find it hard to believe that would have brought you up to a level of 60 during pregnancy.

But if you EVER question it, just also make sure that your baby is supplemented since the 'Standard of Care' is to give breast-fed infants 400 IU's per day, even if he is getting plenty from you, the extra 400 IU's is NOT going to hurt and you can call it a little bit of 'insurance'.

Also, make sure that you are following the guidelines on my Vitamin D Requirements page for your bigger kids...

Sorry that I can't be more specific, I hope this helps...
