There has been some discussion at an ante-natal group I attend about the merits of Vitamin K and how best to administer it to babies.
Given fears about the injection potentially causing a leukaemia risk, there is some support for an oral dose administered through formula feed, as Vitamin K deficiency-related illness tends to mainly affect breastfeeding mothers. Please can Aunty Lactivist weigh in with some facts and figures?
