It has been said that newborns and babies usually display a high number of iron levels in their blood. This is considered normal up to a certain point. A baby who has high levels of iron serum may show some symptoms. For example, the baby may show distress and may show that he/she is tired all the time.

There are some babies who may become poisoned with too much iron due to the use of contaminated or unclean bottles. How babies are fed will also play a huge role in the amount of iron that they will get. When they are exposed to too much lactic acid concentration, this can also become a problem.
