Re: Vitamin D?
New pediatrician is wrong. Vitamin D does pass through breast milk. The problem is that breastmilk does not contain large quantities of vitamin D, particularly when mom is vit. D deficient, as many people are due to our indoor lifestyles and use of sunscreen. If your baby spends time outside every day, getting sun exposure on bare, non-sun blocked skin, she should be synthesizing plenty of vit. D. However, if you live in a particularly overcast area, or your baby is always well-covered with clothing or sunblock, or your baby is very dark-skinned, it is possible that supplementation is necessary.
The nice thing about vit. D drops is that they can't hurt and may help, so if you decide to use them it's not a terrible thing!
