    Default iron supplements?

    my new pediatrician recommended poly-vi-sol with iron for our almost 10month old who is EBF and only taking on tiny amounts of solids. she says he needs the iron but he is not showing any signs of anemia.

    what have other done?

    Default Re: iron supplements?

    My pediatrician takes a blood sample for iron levels at around 9 months. That allowed me to know with some certainty whether or not the vitamins were necessary- and neither kid was anemic despite being EBF and hadrdly eating any solids until close to a year. Nevertheless, I gave my kids vitamins. Not every day, but most days. I figured it couldn't hurt, and might help.
