    Default floradix

    Does anyone know the dosage of floradix for a 13.5 month old? TIA.

    Is there a reason your baby needs this? Is he/she anemic?

    We haven't checked his iron levels recently, but he eats very few solids and hates polyvisol. I was thinking maybe he will not mind floradix, based on what others say. Should I not give it to him? Thanks!

    Babies only need iron supplementation *if* they show low levels in a hemoglobin test (performed with a sample of blood obtained through a simple heel stick).

    Emerald,

    Your child will be perfectly happy just pecking at solids (most parents don't even know the proper amount of food to give their child...in all reality it isn't much!) and getting your breastmilk. I would just make sure that what you are giving him to eat is healthy and nutritious!
