Mumsnet - the number one site for overprotective mothers, made by overprotective mothers!

  • Apologies for the site issues. The server's shipment was delayed. I'll ask again about it and if they can't provide it I'll source another.

Forgive me, but I've never heard of a vitamin K shot. What's it for?
Babies are born with very low levels of vitamin K due to the fact that it doesn't cross the placental barrier in large enough quantities. Newborn infants are routinely given vitamin K shots to ensure that they have enough vitamin K for their blood to clot properly.

Parents in the US have started refusing vitamin K shots because of weird antivaxx shit. Apparently it turns babies into robots. If a parent refuses the shot then their baby can just start hemorrhaging. Sometimes in the brain (which is usually fatal), and this can just happen entirely unrelated to any sort of trauma.

Basically we discovered this almost a hundred years ago and entirely eliminated this particular form of infant death, but crazy parents are bringin' back the oldies.

The British press used to love mumsnet before the great woke takeover, they were constantly lazily mining the site for filling pages like they do now with twitter bullshit.

My favorite mumsnet thread was when they were talking about celebrities that they had slept with and one of the mumsnetters had fucked Adam Richman of Man Vs Food fame.

Does the UK have a problem with parents refusing the vitamin K shot? This is becoming increasingly common in the US.
Some do, there’s a smallish but present bunch of the type who want a natural third stage and delayed cord clipping (which is fine) then bitch about it not happening when something had to be done (to save someone’s life usually, which is a tiny bit more urgent...)
There are clusters of this sort of thing, plenty of non vaccinators, hence our alarming measles rates. It’s not hugely common to refuse vitamin K yet but it does happen.

vitamin K is needed for proper clotting. All babies are born a bit deficient so they get a shot. It’s harmless and prevents bleeds in the brain and gut, which while not exactly common common, weren’t rare either. It used to be a cause of death and serious brain injury.
Interesting refusal is on the rise - what’s the ‘reason’?

exceptional antivaxers think all shots are TOXINZ and KHEMIKILLZ

Honestly I find the anti vax stuff just depressing. Imo you have more success with parents if you’re explaining why they are needed than being confrontational. It’s shit for us all, webe had child and adult deaths from measles in the uk.

back to MN. Just remembered this one, which is brilliant: ‘hedge sex’

MN is not quite woke enough for the press these days, but you can often see stories lifted from it. I also see posts which are quite obviously planted to gauge public opinion on something.

The hedge sex thread anyway. Enjoy!

IM injection shortly after childbirth causes oversensitization and leads to autism. Many such cases! Also they don't like scary-sounding names like propylene glycol being in it. Don't tell them but we put menaquinones in it sometimes too.

RESULTS: Among the 282 378 children in the cohort, 99.7% received vitamin K and 0.3% declined. Midwife-assisted deliveries were more likely to be associated with vitamin K refusal compared with physician-attended delivery (risk ratio 8.4, 95% confidence interval [CI] 6.5–11.0). Planned home delivery (risk ratio 4.9, CI 3.8–6.4) or delivery in a birth center (risk ratio 3.6, CI 2.3–5.6) were more likely to result in decline of vitamin K compared with hospital delivery. Vitamin K refusal was associated with a 14.6 (CI 13.9–15.3) higher relative risk of having no recommended childhood vaccines at 15 months.
That RR though.

The mystery over which family member is searching for "homosexual anime porn" at 12am:

I was so certain it was going to be the older daughter, but it turned out that a grown-ass adult man was searching for "Male on male gay porn". Is it just me or is that a "Naked woman boobs"-tier search term?
Anyway, here's a woman who has determined her son is gay:
