Re: Anyone have an anemic child?

My guy is anemic. And sometimes his hemo. is fine (12) but his rbc's are small and pale and other numbers are off. He did take iron drops for a while, but 1/2 of what the ped wanted. Then slowly 1/3, then 1/4 then none meanwhile I added iron rich foods and watched the other vitamins, especially B's. His numbers are pretty good now (almost 21 months) but its something we're aware of.
