My DD turned 1 yesterday and had a scheduled well visit where they checked her iron levels. With a finger stick they say she was at 6.2 which they said was dangerously low. We then had a full blood panel done to rule out more serious disease. The doctor's conclusion is that she has severe anemia and prescribed Ferrous Sulfate 220 MG/5 ML. I am very concerned about giving her this medicine and would much rather use Floradix. She was born prematurely at 34 weeks by c-section and is breastfed. She is eating table food and eats less than 1/4 cup of food per meal. I am going to start cooking her food in my cast iron pan. Does anyone have experience with an iron level this low? My DD is in the 95 percentile for weight and cheerful as can be. I appreciate any help or advice.
