floradix is the only iron that doesn't constipate me. FWIW, I was comfortable taking it while pregnant/nursing.
I think unless you have a super-flexible non-traditional private school, they're still going to have 'school-like' rules, and that you may have to decide if you're really committing to school culture or not. If I were going to have mine in school (and we have in the past) I'd make sure they were there for the first few days, when people are doing fun, get-to-know-you activities and figuring out seating arrangements. But I'd also become familiar with the student handbook...

That was a must for us, since I wanted to expand on it year after year.) We did this as well. In the future, I'm hoping to buy the Homeschool in the Woods cd for...
We use Sonlight, a Christian literature-based curricula, and love it - history from living books, no workbooks! Many people use just the reading list, getting books from the library.
I'm assuming you have gotten AF back by now, right? Taking a magnesium/calcium supplement can help to even out hormonal shifts due to ovulation (that caused cyclical pain for me). What about thrush, is it possible you have that? I'd definitely be teaching about not biting at that age, but i'm not sure I'd wean because of it. I'm sorry you're in pain!
: hang in there - 19 months was the peak of needy-toddler-nursing for me (14-20 months I think it was) and then they slacked off a bit more. DD night-weaned herself early due to my pregnancy, but I think for DS it was just after age 2.
