Iron and 9 month old

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My daughter had an iron test and the number for total iron was 7.7 (range = 9 - 21.5), and the ferritin was in the range. Some of my other children also have low iron.

The dr. wants her to have 6 mg. of iron daily. She weighs 14 lbs. Should I start? I currently do not have meat to boost that way.

She nurses quite often, and started eating whole foods 2 months ago. No formula or other milk.

Thanks

I was so worried. It all turned out fine! You don't seem worried though just thought there may be ideas from these other mamas!
