Any one have a child with a hemoglobin level around 9.7. My LO just got tested yesterday and this is what we found out he just got over being sick and going through a growth spurt, and just started eating big boy cereals never been a fan of the infant cereals either they want him on an iron supplement but I don't want him on it any suggestions or similar stories?

I would check with your doctor before giving any iron supplements, to make sure you are giving the right does. The idea alone makes me nervous.

Be WICKED careful with iron supplements. Overdosing can kill them, or at least make them very constipated. It would be better to give them rich in iron food.
