I am anemic and breastfeeding..I am not sure if one has anything to do with the other...but I have been feeling very light headed and have some dizziness. I have trouble going to sleep at night even when they kids are sleeping. I also find myself kind of grindning my teeth and feeling constantly thirsty and to top it off getting a lot of headaches...Does anyone have any ideas or have experienced this as well?

You need to eat iron rich foods (like lentils and kale) with vitamin C rich foods (tomatoes, strawberries, kiwi, etc.).
There is a great listing here: www.soystache.com/iron
