My doc said at 6 months I was to start a multivitamin,  I asked about the iron,  she said the formula has enough iron that she needs (she is 9 month as well).  I don't know about breast milk (if you BF).  i would ask you doc at the nest visit.

Yeah I would SERIOUSLY ask your dr before giving her and iron supplement or anything because too much iron can be lethal. Best of luck mama!!

none unless instructed by your pediatrician.

Not trying to hate, just educate. Just because its my opinion, doesn't mean I think I know whats best for you. Its just another perspective.
