Hi my 14 month old Caleb was diagnosed with anemia. And today I just found out his hemoglobin is low. It's low enough to make me really worry. His ferratin was in normal range. A few months ago it was at 10 points and they had him on fer-in-sol. He took that two times a day. Then they said to take him off of it. Well now that that has happened it's dropped. He is on pediasure and that has a lot of vitamins and enriched in iron. When he eats I make sure his foods have high counts of iron in them. He gets lasagna and has beef with mixed vegies and also has the garden vegies from gerber. Has anyone ever had an issue with their little ones about low iron or hemoglobin? And does anyone know or have any advice on what I could do to get it raised back up? I know its hereditary. Mine is low due to vitamin deficient. And my dad has low iron and so did my grandma. Any advice would be sooooo appreciated.
