Our pediatrician ordered 2 blood tests (from the heel and now from the vein) to determine if our baby has jaundice from breastmilk or not, jaundice level is really non-existent currently (the baby looks big time white with pink chicks) and we even do not know why we did the last test.... It was a LOT of blood from vein -- when I saw how much they took I started crying badly. So, now I am concerned that the baby (2 months and 3 weeks) does not have enough blood in him.. He seems to be doing alright, but I'm thinking -- maybe he needs iron now?
We did not want to give him any vitamins -- even though our pediatrician says we should give him some tri-vi-sol with iron -- is it normal to give it? I initially thought that breastmilk supplies all that he needs until at least 4months of age.
Do you give vitamins? The thing is that they are not derived from natural sources (or maybe you know a safe one that is derived?) -- thus they are kind of chemicals..
I'd appreciate your help greatly, I worry so so much about it..
