I just want to know your opinions on the Vitamin K shot they give babies at birth.....dont you have a natural Vitamin K in your breast milk? Is it really necessary for them to have if your breastfeeding?

This is what I found online:
In some countries, injections of Vitamin K are routinely given to newborn babies. Vitamin K is used as prophylactic measure to prevent late-onset haemorrhagic disease (HDN). Since HDN is a relatively rare problem, many parents now choose for their babies not to have such an injection; most pediatricians, however, highly recommend the prophylactic dose for adequate protection.
