Our twins are 33.1 and they just started adding iron to their milk (all my breast milk). They first said that for babies who are only doing breast milk, generally they don't get enough iron. When I asked what their levels were she looked it up and their levels are fine (12 and 13). I hate giving them something they don't need. She said preemies can't get "too much" iron, but I find that hard to believe. Anyone else get extra iron when it wasn't really necessary?
