my 1yr old has low iron, doc told me over the phone.
He said give my baby 2ml, 2 times a day! Isnt that too much?
I told him that as the box says 0.6ml once a day will provide 150% of daily iron.
He said my baby had very LOW iron and requires 2ml 2x a day.
I personally think thats too much.....(am not a doc, just a mom), should i listen to doc or should i just follow the directions on box?
At least she gets some iron supplement, right?
My FIL was sent home from the hospital after having a mild heart attack and the doc prescribed him medication to keep his pulse low and turns out, they overdosed him as he was feeling too weak and his doc told him the hospi ppl told him to take one too many pills! he could've died!
is anyone's 1yr old taking 2ml fer-in-sol 2x a day?

Why is it that people doubt the guy with the medical degree and come here to ask a bunch of people with OUT medical degrees if the guy with the training is right or wrong?
I agree! If she's so concerned about the dosing, why not ask the doctor directly? This isn't CafeDoctor, it's CafeMom, and I certainly wouldn't put my child's health in jeopardy by taking advice from untrained non-professionals.
