I need to find a formula lower in iron --my grand-daughter is only a month old and she awfully constipated. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks everybody.

Some baby's will develop anemia by not having their dosage of iron. Let the doctor know and see what he/she says. They might even have a formula that has extra fiber like the nutritional drinks for kids. Good Luck!

Is that what her doctor said to do? Low-iron formula is hard to find for a reason, it really isn't better for babies. It can lead to anemia later in life.

Similac makes a low iron formula, but I heard it can be hard to find.

But if she hasn't been to her doctor about it, I really recommend doing so before trying to fix it yourself, in some cases there can be a blockage so treating it at home can be risky.

Good luck!

You can try Walmart brand Parent's Choice. They have a low iron formula. My niece is on it and shes just over 2 months. She came home from the hospital and my sister put her right on it. Good Luck
