My baby is 7 months and still won't eat food. He gags and throws up. It doesn't go over well. I didn't think it was a problem because my baby is still gaining well and all that. But recently I was talking to my friend who is a dietician and she said that their stored iron supply runs out at around the 6 months point. She suggested I give an iron supplement. I have talked to my doctor about the baby not eating and he was less than helpful telling me the baby MUST be eating 3 meals a day plus snacks by 9 months. Which I know that is not really necessary. Does anyone else give their baby any iron supplement?
