I have a question about iron supplementation for myself. While I was pregnant I was found to be anemic and had to take iron twice a day. Since I had my daughter I stopped taking the iron, but still take my prenatal vitamins. Over the past few days I have been feeling slightly nauseous, light-headed, and weak, and I am wondering if I am anemic again. I also have read that exlusively breastfed babies can sometimes become anemic, but that might be a separate issue. Anyway, I am wondering if it is a good idea for me to start taking my iron again. Will that iron go through my breastmilk to my daughter, so she doesn't become anemic, or would she need her own supplement? I told my ped at her 4 month visit, which was yesterday, that I don't plan to start cereal until at least 6 months. I even asked her specifically if my daughter might need a supplement, but she said no. Any thoughts or advice? Thanks!
