Re: Vit. K shot

I denied it for my 2nd (know better, do better) because it can cause/increase risk of jaundice & increases cancer risk.

My kids already have the risk of a male inherited leukemia so we don't need to increase their chances.

My first born was jaundiced & had to stay in the hosp. 6 extra days--the 2nd didn't have any nb jaundice.
