All my research has led me to NOT want my baby injected with vitamin K as soon as s/he is born.
If I end up in the hospital, I'll have no choice (state law in NY, they don't even have to get parental permission - CPS can take the kid away if you refuse ) - but if I end up in the hospital, vitamin K is probably the LEAST of my worries.
Is anyone else refusing Vitamin K or doing oral or delaying as long as possible?
Are you doing anything to supplement yourself during 3rd trimester or after the birth?
I'm eating tons of yummy green veggies - I think I'm getting 1000+mcg vit K from diet, plus the 30mcg in my prenatals - and everything I've read tells me that this plus keeping the cord attached until it's done pulsing should be HUGELY preventative against newborn hemmorhagic disorder - Any thoughts or expertise!?
