a few months ago i took my son to the pediatrition because he was getting bruises in really weird places and he was just barely able to roll over so it wasnt from falling. i told my doctor that i was extremely anemic during pregnancy and that i thought my son might be too and asked if he could do a blood test and he told me that the bruises were from me pinching him! i have been looking online and he has alot of the symptoms such as being very pale, the whites of his eyes are slightly blue, bruising and when i took him to his last check up he had only gained 1 pound in 3 months and the doctor said it was no big deal. after seeing that he has the symptoms i feel like i should go back and push a blood test? any advice? does he sound like hes anemic?Answer Question

Are you breastfeeding? I'd be very surprised if a formula fed baby was anemic since formula has so much iron. I would go back to the doctor, or even consider trying a different doctor.
