I want to opt out of the newborn vitamin k shot and eye drops that most hospitals say are required by law. My first son avoided these at Ft. Carson in CO in 2007 but my pediatrician seems to think they are required in NC. Any one have any luck at avoiding these in NC? I am prepared to include directions in my birth plan and submit an exemption form (from vaclib.org) but I am concerned about the eye drops. From what i can tell, they seem to be required by Nc law -just can't find the proper source to contact to find out. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
