Asa is 9 months (actually almost 10, *whew*!) and I just had his 9mo appointment today. My pediatrician told me that Asa's hemoglobin levels were at 11.5. They should be above 11 but she didn't want them to get any higher. They get higher b/c of breastmilk in his system (I am totally saying the dumb-layman's version of this, btw). She suggested I cut out one of my nursing sessions so his hemoglobin levels don't get too elevated.
I've never heard of this. What's the deal?
ps--I nurse him 4x/day and 1x at night.
