check ups

Hi ladies!

My son went to his 9 month check up today and his hemoglobin was low, and we were told to get drops to put in his food for iron. Anemia runs in my family and I work in hematology so I am not too concerned but curious if anyone else had this issue. My son is FF and gets purees and some of what we eat. 

Re: check ups

  • LO has moderate anemia.  I'm not too concerned, he didn't take much in terms of solids until 8 months and is EBF, so that could be why.  I got the iron drops and tried putting it in his food but he could taste it and wouldn't eat.  Now I just squirt it in his mouth after he eats.  He's had issues with constipation since starting solids and the iron makes it worse, so I'm hoping his level corrects soon.
