Anyones toddler on an iron supplement?

3 months ago my sons iron was really low, so ever since then I've been doing everything by the book to bring them up where they need to be, and still it is quite low so his pedi is going to see him and recommend a supplement. Just wanted to ask anyone who has dealt with this if they do out in a pull form or if there is a liquid kind? Also did it affect anything as far as bowel movements or temperament?

  • OMG!!!! I was in nursing school. swear to god!!!! Do you know how little iron it can take to poison a baby??? It is the leading or easiest thing to poison a child. Yes it causes hard stool( poop) you better make sure that baby is checked often it can very easily develop into something you dont want. I am not saying your physician is wrong just make sure he is montitored OFTEN
