Re: vitamin d supplements for infant while breastfeeding?

We live up north (canada) and since DD was born in October, there's no real way for either of us to get enough Vit D.

My doc recommended d-vi-sol but i just found it SO sugary and messy. I switched to D-drops. It's just a single drop and much easier to administer.

When I was pregnant I made sure to take lots of Vitamin D. I remembered reading that when mom's take a good amount during pregnancy, then baby is born with more stored in thier own body. I think they are born with enough to cover their first 3 months ?
