The adequate intake of iron for infants up to 6 months of age is 0.27 milligrams. Infants 7 to 12 months need 11 milligrams of iron a day. Most babies this age meet that recommendation through iron-fortified foods.The one of the few side effects are changes in bowel movements and nnausea, vomitting and heartburn.
