Please help! I recently discovered my baby has microcytic hypochromic anemia caused by an iron deficiency. She is 12 months and never had formula, only BF. She does eat table foods, including cereals. It has been suggested to me that she's iron deficient due to the fact that she doesn't receive formula, but I am wondering if there could be some other underlying cause.
Has anyone else had a bf baby become anemic??
