Hi all just wondering if anyone else has had experience with an anaemic baby?
My DD is 10 months (9 months corrected as she was born a month early). We saw her Paediatrician and he commented she was looking pale (she has olive skin) and wanted to get her iron checked. He contacted me yesterday to say she is severely anaemic. Her circulating iron level was 4 (should be 10-30) and her iron stores were basically zero (need to be 20-200). Paed has put her on iron 5ml daily for 6 months. She's not really interested in food and paed said that getting her iron up should improve her appetite which I'm hoping will then help her sleep too.
Feeling sad for my little darling, she's not had an easy run. Anyone else deal with severe anaemia? Did iron help them eat?
Thanks lovelies 😊
