The other day, O had blood tests done. She crying as squirming at the doctor, it was so sad to watch her! I don’t think it was the needle that scared her, but the fact that everyone was holding her arm down. She hates to be constrained in any fashion.
A few days later I get a call that O’s lead levels are higher than normal. Slight freak out, but I contain it until I get home. When I pick her up at day care, I ask V if her daughter had this. And she said yes. And suggested that I feed her foods that help lower the lead levels.
I get home and do a whole bunch of research, and found a few helpful websites: Mamapedia where I found answers from parents, and it basically said that some kids do have a little elevated levels, and as long as it doesn’t go any higher, it should be fine. So basically I now need to feed her foods high in Iron, and here is a list Foods High In Iron.
In a month we go back for another test but in the mean time, she’ll be eating lots of broccoli and spinach. Yummy!
