    Enfamil® Poly-Vi-Sol® with Iron Liquid Multivitamin Supplement

    A liquid supplement that has 8 important vitamins and iron for infants around 4–6 months of age transitioning to solid foods and for toddlers

    Indication

    Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron Liquid Multivitamin Supplement is indicated for infants around 4–6 months of age who are transitioning to solid foods and for toddlers.

    Rationale and Special Characteristics

    Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron has 8 important vitamins and iron in a convenient daily serving and is an excellent supplement for a child’s transition to solid foods, during growth spurts and for the picky eater. Infants may especially require supplemental iron, as around 4–6 months of age, infants begin to lose their iron stores that they have accreted during the third trimester of pregnancy.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends 400 IU of supplemental vitamin D per day beginning in the first days of life for all breastfed and partially breastfed infants who do not receive at least 1 L of infant formula per day1.

    Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron does not contain ingredients derived from the most common food allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy or wheat.

    Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron Liquid Multivitamin Supplement does not include vitamin B12 since it is unstable in a solution that has the concentrations of iron and vitamin C found in Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron Liquid Multivitamin Supplement.

    While taking liquid multivitamin supplements with iron, a slight darkening of the teeth may occur. Brushing will minimize this temporary condition.

    Osmolality

    When added to 2 fl oz of infant formula or breast milk, 1 mL of Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron Liquid Multivitamin Supplement increases the osmolality by +160 mOsm/kg water2,*.
