Re: Vit. K shot

We have not done it with our last 2 children and will not with the one due next month. I have been told if you are circing right away it is a good thing, but my midwife said that most babies don't need it, so she does not really push it.
Some people I know don't like the idea of doing the oral because they feel it is messing up the gut flora for the baby by introducing something other then breastmilk to the stomach. We have thought about doing the oral, but didn't end up doing so mostly because it was just one more thing we did not feel like having to remember to buy. The midwife that attended my last two births would do the oral, but did not carry it so the parents had to order it and bring it with them.
