I know I've seen this info on here before, but I couldn't find it again. Can anyone tell me where I can get the oral vitamin k online? I haven't had to worry about it up to this point because I was going to be delivering with midwives who didn't do the shot, but now I have to deliver in the hospital (because baby has heart complications), and I want to be able to have it with me to help keep them from giving him the shot when they take him off to the nursery (which I'm so not looking forward to!)<br>
Thanks!

Please, can anyone help me out? I figure I need to order it soon since I'm 36 weeks now. Thanks!

If you want to be sure that they don't give your dc the vit k shot, don't let the hospital take him from you. They probably won't pay any attention to the fact that you gave him oral drops, and might not even allow you to do so. Many times, hospital nurseries function on auto-pilot, and will administer vaccines that were not already given. There is no need for him to go to the nursery, and if he goes, have your dh or mom go with him.

we usually order it from birth with love too-<br>
but now I have a question the heart problem your baby has is there going to be any surgery or is there some concern that resuscitation will be needed? because these types of things would tend to use up vitamin K rapidly so you may want to consider consenting to a shot-
