As I cautioned against supping iron to be bfed baby who is not anemic, I also want to point out, moms who are not anemic (esp if you are not even cycling yet!), do not need iron supplements either!
Cook in a cast iron pan.
eat these foods:
dried beans (lima, lentils, kidney)
sea vegetables (arame), algaes (spirulina), kelp, dulse
meat & poultry (beef, beef & chicken liver, pork, turkey, chicken)
greens (spinach, chard, dandelion, beet, nettle, parsley, watercress, chickweed, comfrey)
yellow dock or nettles tincture
dried fruit (figs, apricots, prunes, raisins)

blackstrap molasses (try adding a little to cereal or rice)
