We start Fe supplementation at 2-4 weeks of postnatal age, and when the baby is feed predominantly enterally.


Our guidelines regardig blood transfusions and Fe: if the baby has recieved several transfusions we check S-Ferritin. If >350 mikrogram/L we follow S-Ferritin until it has decreased below 350 mikrogram/L and start supplementation then.
