It's just a vitamin and it is important. I will be giving it to my son. A Co worker of mine who does not believe in shots gave her new born it.
There are possible negative side effects and it's 20,000 times more then they need there are alternatives such as breastfeeding and oral versions of it. I'm doing the other shots and I will vaccinate my baby. But the vitamin K if you need to sign a consent to a shot I think it's a little questionable. I have an appointment tomorrow I'm going to talk with my doctor about my options. Because I want him to get his vitamin K I would just rather it through different means.
