Calcium and iron tablets

Hi, I am breast feeding mother for 9 months baby. My doctor advised me to take iron and calcium for 6 months alone from the day of delivery. But j am having simmom powder alone. Is it necessary to continue the tablets? At present i couldn't hold my baby for ten mins continuously and also I am very tired after feeding him for more than 15 mins.
