Our neonatologist has prescribed iron supplement (Neferix drops - we're in Europe) for our preemie babe, who is now 10 weeks old, adjusted age 4 weeks.  I'd like to find a non-synthetic, crap-free (no preservatives, fillers, etc.) iron supplement for her instead and my research hasn't turned up anything.  Suggestions, please?!

 

Iron doesn't pass well through breastmilk, so me having an iron-rich diet isn't much help, so I'm told...
