Anemic baby?

I was just wondering if anybody had a breastfed anemic baby, and what you did to make baby not anemic?

  • 4 out of 5 of mine were anemic - because I'm extremely anemic. My red blood cells don't absorb iron so it wouldn't have mattered how much iron I ate. Their pediatrician recommended Poly Vi Sol with iron.

  • I would imagine you increase your intake of iron rich foods. but talk to your Dr of course first

  • Yeah, you need more iron rich foods. It will help baby.
