My ped just prescribed iron supplement for my EBF 3 month old and I am interested in people's opinions on that. He told me that at this age the baby's body makes a switch in how red blood cells are produced and its better to give him iron. I had noticed he was paler, but didnt think he could be anemic with only BF. Thoughts? BTW my ped is always pushing BF in lit. and talks to moms --- but he let the hospital staff give my baby FORMULA when he was born. Though he also instructed them to tag the bassinet breastfeed on demand. So, I don't know if he is as well informed as he could be, but he is promoting BF in theory, Just so you know.
PS do you think that Pablito's anti-gravity hair could be from lack of iron?
