Re: Why give Vitamin K at all?
We didn't give vitamin k to our second, and aren't planning to with our third, either. I don't find it necessary for a healthy full-term baby. Now if baby arrives with health issues and needs his blood to clot sooner than normal, we would reevaluate. I believe baby starts production of vit. k around 6-7 days of age.
