Hi I wonder if anyone can help me, G is just over 5 months, I understand at 6 months babies need extra iron. I don't plan to start weaning until then so she won't be getting enough straight away. The HV said to give vitamin drops from 6 months, will this provide enough iron? She's formula fed so I know I could just go onto the follow on milk but I have a lot of stage 1 milk left in the cupboard and don't want to waste it. Thanks

I'd use up the milk first. Actually I'd start a 6 months + one and give it gradually, say one bottle a day at first, and the other feeds the old milk, until the old one was used up. Have to say though, I didn't give either of mine vitamin drops.
