Hi, my third son tested low for iron at his 9 month check up (he is almost 10 months old) and was prescribed an iron supplement. I'm wondering if he can get the iron from table food and if I up my iron intake? He eats all the food we do, lots of beans, legumes, fruit, veggies, tofu. If he really needs the supplement, I'll give it to him of course. My husband is really freaked out that I havent' gotten the precription filled yet. My friend that is a trauma nurse said he isn't exhibiting the signs of anemia. His hemoglobin was 9.7 when they want it to be 10.5. He is healthy and reaching all the milestone's for his age. Any input??? Thanks mamas!!
