My 10month baby's heomoglobin is low from start, her heomoglobin level is 8.3 i've been giving her iron doses , eats well still no increase in heomoglob?

Typically when young infants are cold their hands and feet will feel cold, just as when they are too warm their head will sweat, assuming they do not have a fever. ...Read more
