Iron supplement — The Bump
Breastfeeding

Iron supplement

I am currently on iron to prevent anemia. Will this affect my ability to nurse? There is a warning in the box about breast feeding but doesn't go into detail. Thanks

Re: Iron supplement

  • I would double check with your ob. After I delivered my DD I had to have two blood transfusions and when I left the hospital they told me to continue taking iron supplements.

  • I've always had low iron and taken supplements (as directed by my PCP). She knows I am nursing and it hasn't affected anything (that I know of at least).

  • There's warnings on everything. It's a CYA policy. There's a few excellent apps from Infant Risk that help you understand the risks.
