The right amount of vitamin D for babies
Date:4/30/2013

well as the levels of vitamin D in their blood at three months, six months, nine months and a year of age. They also looked at how much mineral was added to the babies' bones as they grew.

It was clear, as early as the three-month mark, that there was no advantage to the higher doses of vitamin D and that 400 IU per day was sufficient. "The parents that we saw in the study were highly motivated and made sure that their babies were taking the vitamin D on a daily basis," says Dr. Rodd. The researchers concluded that higher doses provided no additional benefits in terms of helping babies grow a healthy skeleton.

The researchers acknowledge that their infant group had fairly good amounts of vitamin D at the beginning of the study. Therefore, whether higher amounts are needed in infants with lower vitamin D at birth still needs to be clarified.
