ooooh - I'm excited to have found this section of the Mothering forums
DD (10/07) didn't have vit K. She's not had any vax. She was born at a birth center. The doc was surprised/disappointed(?) I'd opted out of abx (GBS+) but wasn't concerned about not having had vit K.
We switched ins from Kaiser to BCBS and selected the most widely known, vax-friendly ped practice I was aware of. Docs were relatively respectful re: our choice to "delay" (I feel like I'm in a constant state of "delaying" as I'm not absolutely certain we won't vax but am by no means ready to get our kids injected). I got a letter signed by the ped for our MW practice as sort of an awareness thing that we were planning to HB. When the ped signed the letter she mentioned that they'd expect vit K, eye ointment (we can say that we, as parents, "gave" that), abx if GBS+, etc. But I sort of figured "what could they do if I didn't do that?" well...
DS (2/09) didn't get vit K at birth (homebirth). At his 2nd-day-of-life checkup the doc was unhappy that I'd not gotten abx (GBS+ again... grrrr) (Birth was "imminent" when the MW arrived so I had a valid excuse for not having had abx.) But we were told he *must* have the vit K. I was sort of surprised but they said it was req'd of their practice. I caved and DS got the shot. I don't see any harm resulting from it but I regret not being better prepared (choosing a different doc!). My kids both had severe issues ("allergy"/bloody stool) resulting in being put on formula and I'm so glad I don't have to wonder if I caused their issues by letting them get vax.
But... anyway, vit K proved to be a bigger deal than I'd anticipated. I don't have any recs. IIRC, maybe alfalfa is a good source? I think my best move is to switch practices if we get pregnant again. Nothing like feeling strongarmed by your peds. I just am bummed b/c we really like them in almost all other ways - and they've been fine with quoting (and recommending) the AAP stance on vax, but letting us choose. Such a bummer.
