The Science Behind UpSpring Baby Iron
All people, including babies, need iron to make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells, which are responsible for delivering oxygen to every cell, organ, and tissue in the body. Without enough iron, this process becomes compromised. Iron is also important for healthy brain development.
Babies get the iron they need from their mothers during the last trimester of pregnancy. When your baby is born, assuming she went full term, she has enough iron stored to last her until about the age of four months. Babies born prematurely may not have adequate iron stores to last them this long.
While many moms begin introducing solid foods (which are a source of iron) around the four-month or six-month mark, others prefer to exclusively breastfeed for awhile longer. If that’s the case, your pediatrician may recommend you give your baby an iron supplement.
The Institute of Medicine recommends 11mg of iron per day for babies 6 to 12 months old. Babies who aren’t getting this amount through breast milk, formula, or food may need an iron supplement. If you have any questions or concerns about your baby’s iron needs, talk with your pediatrician.
