This is a new article and it is excellent-https://evidencebasedbirth.com/evidence-for-the-vitamin-k-shot-in-newborns/
A historical look at how Vitamin K became into routine use.
"How did humans survive before the introduction of vitamin K shot?" Pretty well actually. However, there was an epidemic of Newborn
researchers questioned why it seemed limited to American Style obstetrics and the rise followed the introduction of this method around the world. Babies SHOULD be born with enough Vitamin K from their mothers to protect them in the first days while they began to accumulate their own. What changed?
We had three innovations:
1. mothers were given anesthetics which rapidly depleted their levels of Vitamin K
2. Births were conducted under 'sterile' conditions and
3. Babies were under 'gastric rest'. They were not given any food nor attempts at nursing for three days. (In some radical regions it was only 48 hours!) They might be given sterile water "if needed" at 12 or 24 hours, but they were not fed. Colostrum was thought to be a gastric
4. When babies were finally permitted to be fed, the mother's nipples were first washed with germicide and dried. The mothers were not permitted to touch their babies -- babies came with their hands tied under the wrappings or in mittens to prevent skin contact. Sterile procedures were throughout the week or more hospital stay and were to be followed as long as possible after going home.
This is what we know now.
1. Maternal levels of vitamin K affect fetal levels of vitamin K. Medications which reduce Maternal levels
2. The baby is normally
3. colostrum is a source of vitamin K, AND it contains
4. skin contact with the mother's nipples is another primary source of necessary bacteria. Washing with a germicide is detrimental.
5. Colostrum and milk are food for
And what it all comes down to is: To promote rapid (normal) growth of the bacteria essential to vitamin k levels of newborn babies, the baby should not be washed after birth, should be kept in
When these protocols are followed,
And this is why some mothers make the decision to decline vitamin K if they are not following
