  • Foods like red meat, brocoli, and spinach will boost your iron as well as a daily multivitamin if you're nursing.
    If they're eating solids, give them iron rich foods as well or a multivitamin (if the pedi says a vitamin is ok for them)

  • Yep, give them iron rich foods, eat iron rich foods yourself, and/or try iron vitamin drops.

  • I cook in a cast iron skillet, that seems to add iron.

  • Up your iron in diet and vitamins. I agree totally w/ cooking in cast iron skillets. GL, your babies are adorable.

  • I have an issue with anemia, too. I take iron but I couple it with vitamin C, which helps it to work.
