Eh. I used oral Vit. K for my kids and only for the one's that had bruising at birth. They all showed great clotting the next day when they got their PKU done. So I'm happy with my decision.

 Why? Do you know something the doctors don't?

 I was never told they had it and its not on any of my kids shot records either.

That story sounds off. It goes on to claim there are pictures of the baby bleeding and even refers you to them and there isnt any.

I got it for both but only because they were both hard labors and births. I had planned on refusing for both. Neither got the eye goop though.
