My 18 mo old was put on iron syrup for being mildly low on iron. She spits it out. Can I do a kids multivitamin with iron?

My 18 mo old was put on iron syrup for being mildly low on iron. She spits it out. Can I do a kids multivitamin with iron?

Unlikely to help: There is so little iron in regular multivitamins with iron that it may not help the kid who needs it most. Work with your doc on ways to get this into the kid. I find that folding it into a tablespoon of peanut butter covers the taste and smell in most cases. Others use a variety of cover products like chocolate syrup. Use would depend on your kids sensitivities/allergies/etc. ...Read more

Babys multivitamin requirs to b stored in fridge after opening. I didn't c this&stored the bottle at room temperature &she had the full bottle. Is it ok?

Recently opened?: Baby vitamin drops are not refrigerated at the store, but are at room temperature on the store shelves. A bottle gets used up in 1-2 months, so a full bottle sounds like a new one. If a parent is not a worrier, then the bottle should be fine. If one is a worrier, then she can buy a new bottle. ...Read more

My iron level was low before baby I was taken ironand multivitamin tablets during my pragnancyand aftr nw I have vry high level of iron how I low this?

Anemia: You likely had low iron levels before pregnancy because of extra blood in your menses. During pregnancy your menses cease and iron has time to store up in your body. If you continued taking iron during your pregnancy you likely have extra stored up. It would be best to stop taking iron for now and restart when your primary doctor advises. ...Read more

What multivitamins would you reccomend to be the best for women in your opinion?

You are young and: MVI (multivitamin) daily is great that isn't sold in the chain pharmacies or Costco may be higher quality. We can't recommend brands in this forum. So read the labels, and ask your pharmacist for recommendations. A good, balanced diet is even more important than MVI (multivitamin), as many don't even get absorbed from the binders used. So, get one with good trace mineral support. ...Read more
