My son went to his 3 year old checkup today and we found out he's anemic. So, his doctor prescribed iron drops and we'll have him retested in a month. She said to give it to him when he 1st wakes up and not to feed him or give him a drink until 30 minutes after. My son doesn't take medicine well at all, so what can I do to convince him to not spit these out? Also, has anyone else's child been through this?Answer Question

Is he eating foods that are good sources of iron? My son's iron was low at his 1 year well check and he was prescribed iron drops. Instead of giving them to him, I just tweaked his diet a bit and made sure he was eating lots of beans, broccoli, etc. The next time he was tested, his iron levels were fine.
