What are your views on the vitamin K injection?

Hi what are your views on the vitamin K injection do u think it is necessary or not.

Answer: Hi, These days Vitamin K tends to be almost routine. There are no real side effects to the drug and it does prevent a serious problem (bleeding in the stomach) but it is very rare. Babies do manufacture their own Vitamin K very soon after birth. It is entirely up to you if you agree to have this. Best wishes, Alex
