The iron stores in the baby's system it acquires from the (birth)mother do start to diminish around now, and are completely gone by 4 months, which is why cereal with iron is often recommended beginning at that time. Some people don't like to start solids until 6 months, which is why the formula with iron is so important.

I don't think the doc should have mentioned so frequently if she wasn't going to test for it. All it did was make you anxious . . .

Ask for it to be tested if you're still concerned.

I wouldn't worry too much - she also just has beautiful fair skin, and that is a lot of it.

I'm sure that if the ped was really worried about her being anemic, he/she would have tested her at the appointment. I would try not to worry about it but if you are concerned, go ahead and call to ask if you could bring her in for the test. It can't hurt to check it out if it makes you feel better.
