Instagram photo by thepostnatalproject[ BREASTFEEDING AND IRON ] I am by no means an expert on the subject. However, I learnt a few months ago that your recommended iron intake is the same as it was when you were pregnant. I had to really boost mine during pregnancy and avoided an infusion by looking at my diet. Once Cadence was born, I stopped worrying about it. Silly me! Sleep deprivation and borderline anemia AND hashimotos is actually no fun. I can vouch for that. And I've noticed in the past that iron supplements can make Cadence really unsettled. Since I've been supplementing iron, we've had the worst month of sleep. It's like I have a newborn again. Actually, it's much worse. And it's like I have postnatal depression again from the lack of sleep. I'm so foggy. I literally don't know how I'm driving a car. So I'm conducting a little experiment and not supplementing but looking at my diet again. This smoothie has 42% of my daily intake (note: I had more than one glass!) Red kidney beans, chia seeds, cacao, soy milk, dates, a little vanilla and water. Has anyone else experienced a fussy toddler whilst supplementing iron? I keep getting told there's isn't a correlation but my mummas instincts are telling me otherwise (and they've never been wrong). . . . . #mumlife #mum #motherhood #parenthood #parenting #postnatal #baby #toddler #child #support #pnd #depression #anxiety #mentalhealth #stigma #awareness #recovery #nofiltermum #yougotthis #stayathomemum #breastfeeding #bfing #sleep #sleepdeprivation #babyledweaning #wellness #thepostnatalproject #iron #diet
