Anyone taking an iron supplement while they breastfeeding and pregnant?
I have always had low iron and had to take an extra 65mg while pregnant with DD. Since having her 15 months ago I have just taken prenatals, but there was a month or so when I didn't. During that time I was turned away from giving blood because of low iron. So, now that I am pregnant and breastfeeding I am wondering if I need to take extra iron on top of the 18mg in my prenatals. But, I don't know if it isn't good for DD through my breast milk. I won't be going to the doctor for another month or so.
