Re: Vitamin D to supplement breast milk?

Personally I like to just make sure my little one is getting enough sunlight. It's healthy to get outside for a little bit and then you don't have to worry about all the artificial yuck.

My pediatrician says it is good to use drops with breastfeeding baby but not push as he says it will be ok without as this is our 3rd. I think stone push drops if first baby. I DOS with oldest but formula fed in the end. Second we started but forgot so not this time around. Window light as well I think my sister in law says too for light

Re: Vitamin D to supplement breast milk?

I did not fill the prescription the dr gave me because this was never prescribed with my daughter and she had no issues. Now I am wondering if I should go ahead and fill it...

Unless you are spend 3 hours a day in the sunlight in a bikini year round then considered supplementation. Breastfeeding mothers need 5000-7000 IU. That's enough for mama and baby.

I don't sweat it. I read about 5 minutes of sun per day gives baby the amount of vit. D they need. She gets that in the car! Now if she gets a bottle, like when I go out for the evening or mom watches her for me, I just go ahead and put it in her bottle. I barely remember to give her her zantac every day, vit. D just isn't up there on my list!

My ped told me since vitamin Dis fat soluble, as long as I was getting enough it would come through my breastmilk. I supplement several thousand depending on the amount of sunlight I get.

My iDevices are out to get me. Please excuse mistakes.
