encourage more parents to use infant formulas WITH IRON
The American Academy of Pediatrics is trying to encourage more parents to use infant formulas WITH IRON...and wants manufacturers to label low-iron formulas as nutritionally incomplete.
Many parents choose low-iron formulas because they think the iron causes more GI distress...colic, constipation, diarrhea, etc.
Many physicians also swear this is the case. But so far, studies show NO link between formulas with iron and GI complaints.
