My 2months baby boy has a haemoglobin 7.5... Doctor has advised him to give Feris Drops .. But I have read online that babies below 4months should not be given iron supplements... So I am confused what has to be done, please advice?

It depends on the child and the situation. I'm just going to say that formula is iron fortified, so any infant fed formula is getting iron supplements. If your doctor has recommended it, I am not seeing the issue.
