  • i just did research on these two shots what i found was... vitamin k is given to the babies to help blood flow, but it also thins out the babies blood. on thebottle of the vitamin k shot the side effects say fatality soon after or immediately after injection. [the nurse wont tell u this of course] also, you have NATURAL vitamin k in your breast milk, so if you are planning on BF, u really dont need the vitamin k shot bc you have a natural kind for your baby. also, the ingredients in vitamin k is sodium hydroxide, which is a well known ingredient in cleaners and is also used to make methamphetamine. i will not give this to my baby. i dont see it as being needed.

  • hep b is really only needed if the mother or father has hep b. which they should get tested. therefore, if they dont have it...the baby should not need it. it also contains latex, which your baby may or may not have an allergic reaction to, it could cause fever, which lets face it, a fever of 102 degrees for a newborn is NOT NORMAL.its actually DEATHLY can cause jaundice enlargement and tenderness of the liver fatigue and nausea. i have information on EVERY other vaccination as well, so if you have any questions on any, feel free to ask me :)

  • PS, there are many stories that you can google, that are written by parents explaining how a few days OR weeks OR hours after their child was given the hep b [and many other shots] that their child started acting different, and soon after passed away. When the parent decided to report this to VAERS [Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System], they never call the parents back. MEANING that these deaths do not go reported. imagine someone blowing off the reason your child died. ... its horrible.

  • i had alot of complications when my son was born (i had preeclampsia and hypertension) he was 5 weeks early and he actually died at birth, but they said the vitamin k shot was what actually brought him back... i've heard horror stories of it being given and not really needing too... however i do believe in it.. otherwise i wouldnt have the love of my life with me today

  • Nope. They also have Vit K by mouth and unless you are Hep positive or your baby will be hiring a prostitute or doing IV drugs soon, you will be fine.

  • HEP B can be transferred through bodily fluids and you don't know who does or doesn't have it. And kids don't know any better if they're trying to help out a friend who has a cut. My mom adopted a "healthy" boy who they soon found out had the disease and everyone in the family took preventive measures against the disease. When they send him to school, they're not going to send home a notice that says don't touch this boy if he has a boo boo or you can get a disease. Even though it is very unlikely to get the disease, there is no guarentee.

  • HELL NO, they are insane. HepB vaccine has caused so much destruction. It is given on the first day of life when many babies immune systems cannot handle such an assault. It causes or contributes, along with the DPaT shot at 2 months, to SIDS and SBS. What a fine way to welcome your new baby into this world. The sick practice should be abolished.
