My daughter who is 10 months and has iron deficiency anemia is refusing to eat or drink anything but her bottle. We have to get at least .5ml of her iron supplement in her a day and can't put it in her formula...we have tried everything, putting it in watered down juice like the doc suggested, putting it in water she is having none of it. On top of that she is refusing to eat. I have tried a variety of foods that she used to love, I have tried letting her feed herself..nothing seems to work. The doc says she won't let herself starve but I'm starting to worry especially since she won't take her iron. Any advice is appreciated.
