Hello Doctor, My son is 1 years old. He appears weak & pale. His weight is 8.1 kg which is constant past 2 months. We never used formula as he is still taking mother's milk. Past two weeks we introduced cow milk which he doesn't like. Doctor advised intake of iron & calcium 5ml each everyday. It is advisable to have iron for a baby. If yes, how much quantity? Also, 1st day of taking iron, it seems it didn't digest well. He was crying all night & his energy has gone down. Could you please advise ?

Ans: Its a good thing that you are not giving any supplements or other formula food. It is advisable to visit an experienced Ayurvedic doctor to take an informed call - whether the child requires any supplements or not. Meanwhile, feed him boiled apple (boil the whole fruit, then peel and mash it). You can do the same with other vegetables such as - spinach, carrots, peas etc. You can add mild honey or salt as and when required.
