DD 6 months recently had her 6 month check up with an MHCN. We started BLW about a week ago and so far she has just had a variety of veggies and fruit, and a little plain yoghurt. She is doing really well and demolishing her veggie sticks but the nurse told me I should give her rice cereal as she needs extra iron now. She said it as a general thing, as DD is healthy.
I'm not keen on giving DD rice cereal and would prefer her to get iron from other food sources, if it is even required at this stage. I had planned to try her on meat in a few weeks but maybe I should start now? I just wanted to get some opinions and ideas from others who did BLW on when they introduced meat or other iron sources, and what they were.
She is fully breasfed BTW.
