 DD turned 7 months last week.  She is not really showing any interest in any solids yet.

She is ebf.  Should I give her an iron supplement?  Would that possibly constipate her?

I just know that after 6 months, there is not enough iron in the breastmilk alone....

This is what i do. I'm on an iron supplement for anemia anyway.

Quoting amgrays:

Don't worry about it. You could take an iron supplement yourself and it will go through your milk. Otherwise don't worry unless she shows signs of anemia.
