My 10 month old baby girl was diagnosed with Iron deficient anemia and the doctor suggested to supplemement with iron drops, 30mg twice a day (60mg per day). She is eating some solids and breastfeeds. I feel that 60mg of iron per day is too much. We are trying to give her iron-rich foods but she started refusing her breakfast (iron-fortified oatmeal), so we give her solids only for lunch and dinner. Are there any mothers with similar situation? Would it be OK to give her just 15mg per day (100% RDV)?
