Oral Vitamin K
Here is the site to order oral Vitamin K for babies after birth. Oral Vitamin K can be given instead of the routine shot. It is non-toxic, plant-derived, and fat soluable. It is believed by many natural birth practitioners that oral Vitamin K is a kinder, gentler way to administer this vitamin. It can even be taken by the nursing mother instead of the baby.
Here are some cool facts about babies:

•Babies do not normally shed tears until 2 to 6 weeks.
•Babies are born with 300 bones, but by adult we have only 206 in our bodies.
•A newborn baby’s head accounts for about one-quarter of it’s entire weight.
