Yes, because from the reading I have done I am satisfied that it is low risk, is effective against what it prevents, and what it prevents is serious. My baby will also be at somewhat elevated risk of anemia so I think it makes sense to take that precaution for that reason as well.
no. i dont see any reason for additional Vit. K. Even though we live in a Northern environment, we plan to expose baby to sunlight daily.
