i know it sounds a bit mad but im sure ive heard something about iron or calcium over dose being bad??

From Boots website about those particular tablets...

"Keep out of sight and reach of children, in case of overdose (6 or more tablets) seek medical attention. Excessive consumption may produce laxative effects. Do not use if seal is broken"

He will be fine.
