Yep, been through this with my own daughter when she was that age.
By far the most likely reason you didn't see a boost in her hematocrit was that your son simply wasn't getting enough iron, even with the Floradix. Floradix contains 1mg of iron per 1 mL (not sure how big a dropper is). In order to fix an iron deficit, you generally need at least 3mg for each kilogram that your baby weighs. That'd be a whoooooole lot of Floradix.
How much does your son wiegh, and how much Fer-in-Sol is he taking? Fer-in-sol contains 15mg of iron per 0.6mL, making it 25 times more concentrated than Floradix, though it tastes godawful.
Keep up with it for a month, and then recheck -- I bet you'll see a big difference in his crit.
