Does LA require newborns to have those eye drops put in right after birth? I read a tiny bit on it, but not much. Then another Mom in the medical field told me how unnecessary they are in this day and age, yet harsh. Does anyone have recommended reading on the subject? Did anyone refuse the drops? I hate trying to decipher this sort of thing... This is the sort of thing that makes this expected Mom nervous. While I am at it, I guess I better read up on vaccines and vaccine schedules so feel free to make suggested reading tips on that subject matter as well- especially if anyone has balanced rather than extreme reading recommendations. I did see several recommended pediatricians suggested on this board that offer modified schedules. Many, many Thanks.
