"Breastfed infants definitely need a vitamin D supplement, and most formula-fed infants probably need supplementation too to get 400 IU a day," researcher said.
Breast milk is low in vitamin D, perhaps because human infants typically spent large amounts of time outdoors during our evolutionary history. Vitamin D is produced by the skin upon exposure to UVB rays from sunlight, and it is nearly impossible for either children or adults to get enough of the nutrient from diet alone.

Should infants take part in Halloween and should you spend so much on their costumes since they are not even aware of what is being celebrated
