Hi everyone! I am new around here, but thought I'd just right in. I am looking for from vitamins for my LO. He has low hemoglobin and is exclusively breastfed. The doctor recommended Poly-Vi-Sol but I'm looking for something less slimey.  Can anyone make a suggestion?

I've been doing oodles of research on this as well and was just logging on to get opinions on Vitamin C brands specifically. However, here are some product links that I have found along my searches of various websites and personal experience by parents. Would love more opinions!

 

FYI- did you search in the forms for "toddler vitamin"? I got lots of hits.

 

Was thinking of getting this for when they seem to be getting sick (I have twin toddlers)

Did you search the forums for discussion on iron. I've read in many places some information about the iron in a vitamin is not easy to absorb. I wonder if there are other sources? Just a thought :)

Regarding the Poly - V- Sol, I don't know if it's processed similar to their Fer-in -Sol, but my son was on it for a year, and it made no difference in his iron, once I started with a better iron it made a big difference in a very short time. He was low from a year, and at 3, is almost up to par. I've been using the better iron for the last 4 months. I used the liquid iron by Maxi-Health, and am now using a capsule from Zahlers where I empty the powder into applesauce because it's much cheaper than Maxi, and it's the ferrous bisglycinate chelate form of iron. My pharmacist, when I asked, told me that the Fer-in-Sol, is not the better form of iron, and recommends the better (and slightly more expensive ones.)
 

I need Kosher so these were my best bets, but there are many companies who have this better form of iron.
