So, I just got back from Elliot's WIC re-certification. Apparently, his iron is low. The WIC nutrisionist suggested starting to feed him more. She said at his age, he should only be nursing 2-3 times per day...which I completely disagree with. She also said that I should start feeding him more iron rich food. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get his iron levels up?
*He is nine months old and nurses at least six-eight times in 24 hrs...usually more though. I feed him jarred baby food or baby rice cereal 1 to 2 times per day. And please, no bashing on how rice cereal/baby food isn't good for baby. I JUST want to know how to help his iron levels come up.*
