I am breastfeeding my newborn. Does my baby need to take Vitamin D even if I continue to take my prenatal vitamins?
In short – yes.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps our bodies to absorb calcium and build healthy bones and teeth. Our bodies make vitamin D in the skin when it is exposed to UV-B light.
