Boob Scoop: Healthy, full-term babies have enough iron stores in their bodies to last for at least the first six months. In addition, the iron in breastmilk is better absorbed than that from other sources due to its levels of vitamin C and lactose, which aid in iron absorption. Here’s an excellent piece by Kellymom on what’s normal when it comes to iron levels, why iron supplementation is not the answer for every baby and a list of great foods that are naturally rich in iron. http://kellymom.com/nutrition/vitamins/iron/
