My daughter was just prescribed iron and she just hates any food now! I breastfeed and was told to continue and to feed her three meals (solids) at day. I started cereal at 6 months and veggies/fruit at about 7... She is now 9 months old. After the first few doses of iron ...She hates anything ! Her food won't go pass the lips ! She throws her hands forward ,hits bowl , food is all over the place ... She cries and cries ... Won't even go in the chair some times! She loved her little meal before and I thought she was growing just great! Now I am so scared I don' t know what to do!? I think I traumatized her and I am worry about making the wrong choice . Do I stop the iron and try to get her to eat again or do I keep forcing ! Plus the Internet has scary info n iron supplements with and without ! Any suggestions out there? Is it common? Thanks in advance!
