I've read the propaganda from both sides of the debate and I don't think the shot is all that big a deal, so we'll get it again. I'm also really big about the virgin gut though.... don't worry, whatever decision you make will probably be perfectly fine.
I'm in pa & its not mandatory. I don't feel comfortable with the high dose given at birth via shot and the extra stuff added to the injection. All that being said im more uncomfortable with not giving him any vitamin k so if I can't find the liquid I'll just do the shot.
