Can vitamin d cause constipation?

Can vitamin d cause constipation?

What could be causing my breast fed 6 month old to be constipated? Could it be the vitamin d drops i've been giving him or something else?

Doubt the drops a pb: Changes in stooling are often related to changes in diet.Rice cereal & bananas are common constipating agents while juices often loosen stool.
