    4. Breastfed infants may get enough vitamin D from mother's milk
    This could be an alternative to giving infants vitamin D drops. A U.S. study suggests that  babies who are breastfed may get enough vitamin D from their mothers' milk if the moms are taking a high dose of vitamin D supplements. Health experts recommend moms to exclusively breastfeed their babies until six months for the nutrients and protection it can give the baby. However, breast milk does not typically contain vitamin D. The study found that by giving the mothers vitamin D supplements ranging from 400 to 6,400 IU, their babies also received relatively the same amount that the babies are given via vitamin drops.

    5. Having more sex really does improve chances of conception
    You'd think it's already a given, right? If you want to get pregnant, have sex a lot. Two new studies found that the more a woman engages in sexual intercourse, the more frequently her immune system gets the message that it's time to make a baby, which may help increase her chances 0f conceiving. Researchers argue that when a woman engages in sex with her partner even when she's not fertile, it triggers a change in her immune system that could increase her likelihood of getting pregnant. The two studies were published in the jounals Fertility and Sterility and in Physiology and Behavior. (time.com)
