Taking an iron supplement

I have been anemic since as long as I can remember. Not severely, but enough to make me feel run down sometimes. I used to take an iron supplement, but when I got pregnant I stopped because I was taking the prenatals and didn't want to overdo the iron. My baby is 6 months old and between her and my 3 yr. old twins I have been feeling pretty run down again lately and remembered that I haven't taken iron. My question is, if I am still taking my prenatals would adding an iron supplement be dangerous to my baby. I've heard of kids getting poisoned by taking too much iron, I sure don't want to indirectly poison her. Does anyone else take iron or have any thoughts about this? Thanks!

I don't know about poisoning her but there is a good vitamin with good iron in it- Hema-plex It has a lot of the B vitamins and vitamin C plus 85mg of iron. It absorbs better too I don't take prenatals just that- I have thalassemia so a lot of the vitamins and iron pills don't work for me.
