Iron deficiency?

NANCY - posted on 03/09/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




I took my 11 month old son for a regular visit to WIC and discovered that he has iron deficiency. I'm planning to ask his Dr. for iron supplement but beforee that is it possible to fix it through his feeding. He is breast fed and he also takes cereals and vegies and fruits. He has recently started taking chicken. Any suggestion on what I should feed him?

Since you are breastfeeding, do you think if you took the iron supplement it would help him?

My midwife had me continue my prenatal vitamins as long as I was breastfeeding.

Just guessing here...
