Vitamin D is one of the few fat soluble vitamins that don't cross into your milk readily at all. For your baby to get vitamin D , either get out in the sun a little bit or supplement with Carlson D drops (just 1 drop is the dose, it is just vitamin D in vegetable oil.) A blood test for a routine physical will let you know if you are deficient and it's hard to predict. For example, I am not deficient and don't do anything besides eat healthy, take an occasional multivitamin and play outside with my kids, but my DH was deficient and needed Rx supplements even though he has the same diet and spends more time in the sun than me.
