So low intake of these things during these period causes their deficiency.

You have low haemoglobin level, so you have to take iron XXXXXXX diet and iron and folic acid tablets after consulting with your doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Cause of your back pain / sleepy hands and legs might be nutritional compromise, lack of sleep, new demands from the infant and breast feeding on demand.

You have to take balanced diet XXXXXXX with fruits and vegetables, whole-grain breads / cereals, calcium-rich dairy products and protein-rich foods such as meats, fish, and legumes. This should provide an adequate amount of essential nutrients.

If you eat a reasonably healthy diet, vitamin supplements are not necessary.
"Getting your daily iron from food is preferable to taking iron supplements, which sometimes cause abdominal discomfort and constipation XXXXXXX

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries, rate and give review.

Wishing you good health...
