Iron Levels

Can anyone tell me the range of good iron levels in small children? I'd also like a link if one is available to look at it. :) Thanks!

  • I know that it is to be higher that 9 because my daughters doctor told me when her iron level was 9 that it was to low and so i put her on a multi vitiman high in iron and now she no longer has low Iron
