One-Year Checkup

Today Calvin has his one-year visit with the pediatrician. I asked them to check his iron levels, as I was curious if they would be in normal range. Despite never having iron-fortified formula or food and despite never having taken vitamins, he was in a normal range.

Is Iron Supplementation Necessary? For the breastfed baby, the answer is usually “no.”
