The American Academy of Pediatrics increased their vitamin D recommendations for infants in late 2008. A recent report in Pediatrics takes a look at how we're doing. The answer is; bad. The vast majority of infants still do not get adequate amounts of vitamin D.
Pregnant moms should make sure their vitamin D levels are on the high end of normal. Mom should make sure her vitamin D levels are high while she is nursing her infant. And infants should also be given supplemental vitamin D.
