Hello all! DD is 8 months old and so will have to be going for her 9 month checkup soon. I know that they do a blood test for anemia at this time. DD is pretty much exclusively breastfed with a once a day serving of homeade fruit or vegatable baby food. Does anyone know if this test is necessary? I hate for her to go through something that is just someone's idea of what testing should be done on all babies. Any ideas?
