I must admit that I get confused with my vitamin d levels and what to supplement but my daughter (now 3) is even more of a worry. I did approach the gp to get her tested earlier this year with my concerns for her being an offspring of someone with ms and being mixed race. My gp didn't want to test and wrote to my neurologist for advice. I couldn't believe the response and took it so seriously that it went in the bin. Basically I had no reason for concern and no need to test or supplement! I then tested us both through a postal test just at the end of April. My daughter was around 56 and I think I was 71. We passed with flying colours according to the lab! Anyway, I was a little concerned, especially with my daughter, who had been getting some vitamin d supplement, along the RDA levels. However, as we were going on holiday shortly after, I thought I would just focus on getting out in the sun. We then had another holiday about 6 weeks later and a really good summer with plenty of time outdoors. I have again supplemented since the weather changed at a higher level (1000iu) a day (she only weighs about 17kg) and just ordered another test kit for us. I am interested to see the result but to me it is always after the event that you find out the levels and I still wouldn't be sure what to supplement when there is no potential sunshine for months. Would it differ much depending on what the results show? Anyway, I do get confused . I will post further when we get our results.
Don't worry about getting her tested, just supplement based on weight - 1000IU per 10kg

So if she weighs 17kg, you could give her 2000IU/day or 9000IU/week.
Vitamin D drops are more convenient for children.
