Hello... my 9 mo. old just tested borderline for anemia... my pediatrician has recommended an iron supplement. My DH and I have concerns about teeth staining and overdosing, but obviously want him to not be anemic as well. Has anyone here corrected low iron w/ diet as opposed to using a supplement? I was thinking of trying more iron rich foods, like egg yolks, molasses, etc. and also adding in some more baby cereal during the day and seeing at his 12 mo. appt. if his levels are up, but wanted to hear from the parents here to see if that has worked or can work. I'd also like to use Floradix as his supplement, but can't figure out what the dosage would be for his age group, as the only one I can seem to find is the adult version, the child version doesn't seem to contain iron...
