merry christmas to all.
my baby is anemic. he got a 7.7 on hem. test. i breastfeed but clearly am not passing enough iron to him. the doctor want he to give him an iron supplement starting today and i am having a hard time coming to grips with this. 1ml is 150% and i am to give him 1ml twice a day...300%. he will have a stomach ache and be constipated. i do not want him to be anemic ahhhh...i considered floridix but it has honey in it. has anyone else been through this or have other suggestions to up his iron in a month so we can just conquer this issue though food( in a month).
btw his prescription is liquid ironferrous sulfate 15mg
