K-Quinone-(Scientific Botanicals, Inc) each drop contains 2mg K1.
Biotics Research Bio-K Mulsion, each drop contains 500 mcg K1.

I've read that both can be given to newborns instead of the vitamin K shot.
I am leaning towards getting the Bio-K Mulsion because I found it for both a cheaper price and cheaper international shipping to me here in the UAE.

If one drop of the Bio-K mulsion contains 500 mcg and 1 drop of the K-Quinone contains 2 mg and recommended dosage of the K-Quinone is 2 drops at birth etc. What would be the dosage of the Bio-K Mulsion?
Anyone familiar with this brand or used it?


Thanks!!!

I'm not familiar with that brand, I used K-Qinone. I used the dosage recommendations of oral Konakion as given to infants in Europe. I found the only English instructions on this New Zealand website, but it should give you a good idea how many mg of K1 are to be given when:
