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.

I understand the fear, but if you're going to give the vit K no matter what, I would seriously research the virgin gut. The idea is that introducing anything other than breastmilk in the first 4-6 months causes damage to the gut, since it's not fully closed. I would think that the "risks" of the shot would be lower than the risks of introducing a non-breastmilk substance into a newborn's gut.

Here is a good introductory.

We don't give it until after baby has nursed really well for a while, soit isn't the first thing to hit their gut.

They get less vitamin k than the average baby gets of lansinoh LOL. Each dose is 2 drops. Compare that to the bolus of synthetics and chemicals in the injection, entering into the blood stream. I will stick with the oral, personally.
