    Why no mention of my man? Dr Jack Newman

    And we never did baby cereal. We did whole oatmeal some mornings. We offered high iron items like black beans with high vitamin C items like mango, oranges, etc. We rarely offered high iron foods with dairy foods since that messes with the absorbtion of the iron. I have struggled with anemia a lot as a teen. We've been tested multiple times in the past year and are always great on iron! We also cook in cast iron now.

    Guess what I found in Dr.Sears' Baby Book??? That the soy formula we've been supplementing with is the WORST of formulas, because 1. it predisposes LO to soy allergies later, 2. they are lactose free (read: NOT like mama's milk) and 3. higher in salt and LOWER in iron than other formulas.


    Crap.

    Eh, I'm not scared. I'll have my SIL fight her SIL. Although before her SIL was erased from the wedding pic, she didn't look like someone I'd like to meet in a dark alley.

    So, Lyn, are you and Dr Jay close? Do you let him see your naked baby pictures? Is he on your "private friends" list??

    I love me some Dr Jay.....
