My son was recently diagnosed as being anemic at his 9 month check up. This was a complete surprise considering he has tons of energy, was sleeping great and actually has a beautiful tan right now.
We were advised by our Doc to supplement with liquid iron daily and to introduce meats into his diet, as well as iron rich veggies until his 12 month check up.
My question to you is what dosage did you doctor prescribe of the liquid iron (I know every baby has different needs/different dosage) but I'm curious to see what advise you were given.
Also, did it stain your babies teeth? If so how did you manage the stain, and was it permanent?
Any feedback is much appreciated!
