Does anyone know of any formula that is iron free or low in iron? My son is breastfed but when we do give him formula he gets really constipated even after just one bottle. His ped said it was the iron in the formula. We threw out all of the stuff we had because we'd rather give him breast milk even after I've had a glass of wine than to give him formula again.
Do you know of any brands that make iron free/low iron formula?
I know that Enfamil makes a low iron formula. I found it at Babies R Us. My daughter had the same issue...it was too much iron for her. Then my supply dried up despite my best efforts to keep it and we discovered she had troubles digesting the milk proteins, so we ended up getting the Gentlease (well, the store brand equivalent).
