  • I do the mega foods mini blood builders. I'm honestly not sure how they are for anemia. I take them when I'm not pregnant because of blood loss during my periods. (they are horrible and I faint) they have vitamin C to help with absorbing and they've never caused digestive issues. Of all the iron I've tried that's the best. It was the only thing that helped me not faint.ย

    @EmilyE13 Not a problem for me this pregnancy, but I used to deal with iron deficiency off and on for years. I found Palafer the most manageable iron supplement for my tummy to handle. Also, cooking in cast iron cookware or with a lucky fish (a little cast iron sculpted as a fish that you toss in the pot when making soups/sauces/stews) helped a ton.ย

    @EmilyE13 I know!!! My iron levels improved drastically when I moved in with DH because he always cooks with cast iron! It absorbs into the food.ย 

    @katiekins029 You might do well to ask through La Leche League International or the International Breastfeeding Clinic (they offer virtual appointments). Your OB may also be able to refer you to a specialist to ask.

    GTKY: What's your favorite children's book? Well, we are huge book worms in this house. My absolute favorite books to read to my kids are Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo and The Room on The Broom. I read Charlie Cook's Favorite Book probably 300 times to my son. We wore out the book. For slightly older kids I love "The Book with No Pictures". We have literally thousands of books in our house. My least favorite is The Rainbow Fish. I hate that book. I read Where The Wild Things Are to my oldest so many times I was relieved my other two didn't care for it. Although we do have an awesome Max costume that my oldest wore everywhere for months.

    The Bad Mood and the Stick (good for toddlers and slightly above). Weโ€™re big book readers in this house though and have lots of favorites. I like Itโ€™s Time to Sleep My Love for babies- the artwork is so beautiful. My daughter really liked the classic wordless books Goodnight, Gorilla and Good Dog, Carlโ€” maybe because weโ€™d make up the words as something different each time, I donโ€™t know. The art is fun in those, too.
