My 9 month olds hemoglobin is 9.6. My pediatrician called me today and said give her vitamins for the next 3 months. I am terribly upset, should I do this or go have further testing?

This is very common, especially if baby if breastfed. I would give her the iron fortified vitamins as directed and then have it rechecked. Be aware that iron can be very constipating so you may want to up her fruit and veggie intake to prevent any problem.
