Has anyone come across these? My little one's hematocrit was low (about 8) at his 12 month checkup last week . We are waiting on the results from a CBC to determine how anemic he is. In the meantime, the pediatrician prescribed 15 mg Fer-In-Sol per day, but I do not like the ingredients list! We have Nature's Plus Baby Plex, but they don't have iron in them.
Due to food allergies, DS didn't really start eating solids until he was about 10 months old. He still nurses about 7-9 times in 24 hrs. He's not a very big eater (can't have wheat or dairy still), although we offer him many choices including dark green veggies, pork, chicken, and turkey. We don't really eat red meat, but I did just buy some bison to try. We do use cast iron cookware.
I was thinking of blackstrap molasses, but it is going to be tricky to get it in him. He does not let us feed him - he does only finger foods himself. And he will drink only water from a cup, anything else makes him wrinkle his little nose, lol.
