Iron Suppliment while bf?
DS just had his 6 month check up (is really almost 7 months now) and his doc asked that I add iron vitamin drops to our regimen for him. Now I tend to run on the anemic side (very much so during pregnancy) but am a bit hesitant to give him suppliments esp if he doesn't really need them. Any info on this would be much appreciated.

For healthy, full-term infants, iron supplements aren't needed unless baby has been shown to be deficient through a simple blood test. :)
