Iron supplement for baby

Hi mummies, do you give your baby iron supplement? Can share the brand of your iron supplement? My baby is not taking enough solid and currently still on breastmilk. Understand that breastmilk is low in iron so i am worried that shes doesn’t get enough iron. Should i supplement her with iron drop? Can gp prescribe or do i have to go to pd? TIA!!! 🙏

You can continue to give your baby iron fortified cereals dear, I still do even when my baby is one. I mix in with her milk

Exactly 1yo. Your son was tested for his iron level?
