Where to get oral vitiman K?

My midwives don't carry any of the "standard" post birth stuff such as eye drops, pku screening paper, and vitamin K.

I'm not gonna do the drops, but feel like Vitamin K seems fairly harmless, as there are no conclusive studies showing problems with giving oral K to newborns, as oppossed to many studies showing that breastfed babies are at risk for vitiman k bleeding disorders ( the ONLY thing breastfed babies have a risk for that formula fed babies do not).

While, instinctually I feel like my breastmilk doesn't produce vitiman k for a reason, I still want to be sure.

Anyway, where the hell do I order infant doses of oral vitiman k from? It has to be repeated so I'd need at least a few 1mg doses.
