my dd's iron

Iron animia runs big in all the girls and women in my family.  I am trying to let or hope it doesn't happen to my babygirl.  She will be 11 months in a few day and I thought she was getting enough iron and formula, but my sister and her friend had told me they think my DD isn't getting enough.  My daughter gets a multi-vitamin (enfamil poly vi sol) which has 10mg (about 67% DV) of iron in it for infants.  My baby also gets 18 oz worth of formula though out the day.  She gets a mix of infant and toddler formulas.  Infant formula has 1.8mg of iron per 5 oz of formula and ther toddler formula has 2mg per 5 oz.  DD gets about 9 oz of the infant formula and 9 oz of toddler formula.  Plus she gets spoon feed too.

I would check with her doctor. If she gets too much iron it can cause other problems.

I wouldn't add iron unless your doctor says she's anemic. Too much iron can cause problems. I am always anemic but I always have bloodwork done before adjusting iron intake.

Unless her pedi is concerned I wouldn't worry about it.

What me and my children do is raisins and orange juice. the orange juice(vitamin c) helps your body absorb the iron better. At least thats what my doc told me when i found I was anemic with an iron deficiency. We also eat alot of fish high in iron and I personally take an iron pill everyday. the kids a multi-vitamin. Talk ot your doc first. and if she can chew well enough give her raisins to snack on and some juice.
