CDC/AAP recommendations are NOT 1mL/day
September 6, 2019
Not sure where the 1 mL/day guidelines for this product are coming from and I’m disappointed in myself for not researching first. The CDC and AAP recommend 1 mg (not mL) per kg of body weight per day for exclusively breastfed infants beginning at 4 months before introducing iron-fortified foods. For two days I gave my girl the product-recommended 1 mL and she’s been super fussy. That’s because she’s 13.5 lbs - so 6 kgs - and therefore only needs 6 mgs of iron per day. That’s a FRACTION of the dosing instructions of 1 mL on this product. Buyers and parents beware!! Overdosing babies on iron is a very real thing, so I’m curious where these recommendations are coming from.
