Dd is almost 9 months old and she has had serious bronchitis twice already. SHe is fully breastfed and since about 2 months is eating some banana, apple, brown rice and avocado (it since yesterday peas, yeah!). She is non-vaxed and in daycare. I have been giving her some vitamin C that our chiropractor gave her but that contains only 25 mg per dose. I read a lot of info varying from 50 mg a day to 1,000 mg per day. I obviously want to do this right, please let me have your suggestions. I am taking Vitamin C myself so that might give her some more through bm.
Also, since she's been sick twice now, I am worrying about iron.
I have not fed her iron fortified rice cereal, are there any other ways for me to keep her iron up?
Sorry for all the questions, thanks for your help!
