I have been diagnosed with anemia during this pregnancy. I breast fed my first son and was planning on doing it with my next one. However, I am worried I won't produce enough milk. I have lost 13lbs. during the pregnancy and have only gained 7 back. And the doctors have told me I still have to gain 10lbs. extra to be able to breast feed. Has anyone gone through something like this? And if so, what did you do?
Mind you I only have 2 more months to go!

Here is a great listing of iron-rich foods: www.soystache.com/iron Be sure to include a vitamin C source with your iron source (the C increases the absorbtion of the iron)
Avoid eating dairy, it leaches iron.
