I have an eight month old son and I believe that he has an iron overload. Now I know that many of you are probably skeptical, but here are the indicators.
- he has had gray/black stools - which can be too much iron, my mother in law had a similar experience with her son. - also we have just found out a couple months ago that hemochromatosis runs in the family (on my husbands side).
Now about my son: I exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months. Then he started having bottles on days that I worked (which is Tuesday and Thursday). Also he has a dairy sensitivity - there is a lot of dairy allergies in the family. So I had to take dairy out of my diet completely - so he gets soy formula.
I need to get low iron soy formula - does anyone have any information about this?View Thread
