I'm glad you stood up for yourself. I think you may have to do it again before the baby is born! In fact, this doctor sounds very against natural birth, and that'd be a red flag to me. It's not too...

At LLL, I've heard over and over what Nanner said--there is not much iron in breastmilk, BUT it is well absorbed. I have also heard, though, that the breastmilk iron is not as well absorbed if it is...

Thanks--you don't think they'll wear out too quickly washing on hot? I also wash my ME covers on hot and I think I'm 'supposed' to wash them on warm, so maybe I shouldn't worry too much.
