I was just reading about how babies have stores of iron that run out at 4-6 months of age. The article suggested that you give the baby an iron supplement if they are BF (formula is usually enriched with iron). Does anyone know if enough iron passes from mom to baby through nursing to nourish a baby? Are there any moms out there who take iron becuase of this? I'm not anemic so I wouldn't take it otherwise.
