    USE BY DATE ON BOTTOM OF CARTON.

    Enfamil Fer-In-Sol varies in color from colorless to bluish-green to amber. Any color within this range is normal and does not affect the potency of the product.

    Side Effects

    Temporary discoloration of the teeth due to liquid iron supplements can be minimized by thorough brushing. While taking iron, stools may appear darker in color. This is normal and no cause for concern.

    Osmolality

    When added to 2 fl oz of infant formula or breast milk, 1 mL of Enfamil Fer-In-Sol Liquid Iron Supplement increases the osmolality by +55 mOsm/kg water5,*. If the resulting osmolality is higher than desired for a particular baby, an option is to add 0.5 mL of the supplement to the feeding twice per day.

    *A previous formulation was evaluated.
