iron after transfusion.

In the past, we paused iron supplementation during three days after a blood transfusion. However, we thought this routine did not really make sense as the iron load from a blood transfusion would correspond to ~1 month of iron supplementation :)

In infants with many transfusions, we do check S-Ferritin, and halt iron supplementation if S-Ferritin is >350 μg/L.
