Long story short.. our 6 month old exclusively breastfed baby is anaemic. Her levels were at 51, when they should have been over 100. So after being to pediatric emergency, and after an appointment with a hematologist we are now giving her iron supplements. Has anyone been in a similar situation? The Hematologist can't figure out why she is anaemic, and we will continue to see her, but she is responding well to the iron supplement, so we have to continue giving it to her. The iron supplement tastes AWFUL, she hates taking it and I hate making her take it. I'm hoping someone out there has figured out a way to do this that does not involve tears. We are doing baby led weaning, and she has started munching on cucumbers, watermelon, carrots and a few other things. She will not take a bottle, so I can't add it to a bottle. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
