In the northern half of the U.S. it's very difficult in the winter months to get sufficient Vit D from the sun. Kelly Mom does explain it well but note even if mom isn't deficient (and MANY women are) very little is passed through to the breast milk.

With more and more benefits being researched, or if you tend to use sunscreen religiously, it's a good idea to supplement.
I supplemented just from the dropper. Or when I bottle fed I added a bit to my breast milk.
