In this episode, a parent shares that at a recent pediatrician visit with her 9 month old son, the doctor mentioned that his iron was low. The pediatrician went on to recommend that this mother reduce the amount of breastmilk and increase the amount of food she offers her son to compensate for the low iron levels. She is concerned with this advice as she thought that breastmilk should be the main source of calories for her 9 month old. She is confused about whether or not to change her feeding routines with her son, and is looking for advice.
