I didn't get a say either way. My son needed to go to the NICU after birth to be monitored for a few hours and everything was done there without even asking me. I still would have gotten the antibiotic eye ointment though even if they did ask. After my cousin's baby had horrible conjunctivitis after only a few days old...I'd rather him have some gunk in his eye for a few hours rather than burning pain and discharge later.

I have very adamant about what happened after my second son was born. I did my reasearch this time. I seriously cannot remember if he got the vit K shot. I don't remember if my oldest got it either. I do know that he would absolutely not be getting the Hep B before we left the hospital. I tested negative and I don't think a 2 day old baby should be getting shots. He has since been caught up.
