The American Academy of Pediatrics' latest recommendations1 suggest:
Breast-fed and partially breast-fed infants should be supplemented with 400 IU a day of vitamin D beginning in the first few days of life.
All non-breastfed infants, as well as older children, who are consuming less than one quart per day of vitamin D-fortified formula or milk, should receive a vitamin D supplement of 400 IU a day.
Children with increased risk of vitamin D deficiency,such as those taking certain medications, may need higher doses of vitamin D.
