My Son is almost nine months old and had his checkup today his ped took a blood sample and cam back telling me his blood count was low and i need to give him iron supplement and some formula. He was exclusively breastfed for 6 months and now he has some soilds some veggies and yogurt one or twice a day.
Upon telling my MIL she flipped out at me saying this is because i breastfeed and i need to give him formula and more meat. Shes a pain and gave me the same thing with my DS who i nursed for 16months until she self weaned. My ds never had this low blood count issue and now im nervous anyone else experience this with their baby?
What did you do? I dont want to give him formula (also he wont take a bottle).
