  • Re: Severe Sugar Cravings

  • Re: Where to get oral liquid Vitamin K for baby?

    i seem to recall a recent article (study perhaps?) that said dietary vitamin K in the mother did not transfer well to the baby.  i want to remember they were discussing in utero transfer rather than via breastmilk, but my brain is all afog today and i can't put my hands on the information. does anyone know what the heck i'm talking ...
