In brief: Give baby Vit D

Ideal Vit D levels are >30, so yours is marginal.
It is never too late to start Vit D supplement for your infant. Breast milk has minimal Vit D but formulas are usually fortified with vitamins and 32 oz will provide about 400 IU a day. Current recommendations for infants 6-12 mo has been raised to 600 U/d or 800 if premature at birth, and a 1000/day after 12 month. Teeth often erupt after 9 mo
