Q. My toddler is refusing to take the formula diet. My toddler is refusing to take the formula diet. Doctor has prescribed him iron drops. But why is the need and could he be iron deficient at this age?

A. His iron supplements would be incomplete and so is the requirement of iron drops being prescribed by the doctor. My daughter was also found to be iron deficient and the doctor suggested me to add diets such as oats, beans like soy beans, cereals, green vegetables like spinach, seafood, egg yolks, iron fortified breads, dry fruits. Iron plays a vital role in the formation of blood and its deficiency can lead to anemia. Early stage child anemia is harmful for the child. Do not forget to give oranges and citric fruits because it helps in the absorption of iron from foods taken.

Q. My two years old boy started to limp and to complain about foot pain. what can it be? My two years boy is complaining about a left foot pain. the pain starts in his thigh and radiates down. He doesn't have fever or any other symptom. He started waking in the age of 1.5 years and he never walked well. He seems like he is never balanced on his left leg. His labor was traumatic, and I needed a C-section. what can be the source of his complaints?

A. Hello...has your son been seen by a pediatric orthopedist? There are many things this could be...including flat feet, no arches (have the child step in water and then walk on concrete...see if you can see an arch there or is there nothing but the water with no indication of an arch. Just in case of something more serious, and not to frighten you, but let's say things are out there today, ? a rare syndrome or even Charcot? Only a pediatric orthopedist could address those types of issues and no mom ever wants to see her son or daughter suffer...
it hurts us as much as them I think! If it continues or gets worse, please do not delay in seeing the pediatric orthopedist to be sure.
I hope this was helpful and blessings your way. BARBS
