I was told to give iron to my five and a half month old at 1 mg. per kg. She's 5 kg, so 5 mg daily.
Is this recommended here? The doctor said the new recommendation is from 4 months old. From what age do people give and until what age?
Except that the iron in breastmilk is very bioavailable so a little goes a long way. I don't supplement. I do feed a little minced up meats and mushrooms and fruits and veg from about 6 or 7 months on.
