Has anyone heard of this Vit. D for breastfed babies as a sort of supplement? Apparently the experts are saying that some children are at risk of vit. D deficiency and therefore at risk for Ricketts. They are currently suggesting that all breastfed babies receive vit. D in addition to their breastmilk. It just seems odd to me that breastmilk wouldn't supply ALL of the needs for your baby. I don't have a breastfeeding child right now, but I may again someday in the future, and I was just wondering what everyone thought. I've breastfed all of my children, and we've never had any problems, so where are all of these cases of Ricketts coming from?
